Power, Resistance and Social Change

The research group Power, Resistance and Social Change, at the University of Gothenburg, is a platform for interdisciplinary research. The research group sprung out of an interest in resistance as a phenomenon, which embrace activities, which are to be seen as constructive, productive, invisible, grand, hindering or up-scaled. Resistance, from this perspective, might challenge, change or even produce power.

The research group is a site of learning and creatively and collectively interpreting pressing societal challenges, resistance as an engine of change, and power as both a biopolitical as well as a disciplinary, discursive and sovereign phenomenon.

The members pursue many forms of concerted work and the research group provides a collaborative platform for converging, theoretical and empirical, research interests within the field.

One of the main research interests revolve around how power operates in contemporary society and how power-relations change as well as interact with different forms of resistance or other change-initiating practices. We address among other things the establishment of truth regimes, questions of subject formation, identity and belonging, the relationship between government and materialities as well as resistance performed by acts, texts, signs, identities and language.
