February FIREtalk: Frameworks of Power

The Research Commons invites graduate students from every discipline to join us for our next FIREtalk, Frameworks of Power.

What factors contribute to systems of domination, privilege, marginalization, oppression and liberation? How do power dynamics play out in research and scientific inquiry? Are there parallels between manifestations of power in social and mechanical systems? How can unequal and oppressive relationships affect behaviour? How can power be implemented to improve well-being?

When: Wednesday, February 26, 4 – 6 pm
Where: Koerner Library, Room 216
