Authority and subversion are mutually inextricable. Authority and associated terms such as authorship and authoritarianism express different forms and degrees of power. Subversion also comes in various forms and may be positively or negatively disruptive. Environmental degradation, technological complexity, global shifts, and the collapse of clear ideological divides between left and right-wing discourses invite reconsiderations of relationships between authority and subversion. The Humanities Center welcomes scholars across disciplines whose projects consider, for example: literary or artistic strategies for claiming or subverting authority; authoritarian or subversive political or social movements; or breakdowns of consensus around ideological, aesthetic, or cultural values.

Please join the conversation and subscribe to our email list to be informed of upcoming “Authority and Subversion” events.

Please join us in congratulating the Northeastern University faculty fellows selected for the seventh annual Northeastern University Humanities Center Resident Fellowship Program. This fellowship provides a focused period of time for 6 faculty fellows to pursue research, to collaborate around a common theme, and to share their work with the Northeastern community.  The theme for the 2019-20 academic year is “Authority and Subversion.”

 

Please join us in congratulating the 2019-20 Faculty Fellows.
