“DISSENT AND POLITICS: ACTIVISM, INFORMATION AND CRITICAL STORYTELLING” (Key word: DISSENT)

Teaching Team: L. CONTADINI, M.PETRELLI

Focus on:

  • Mainstream versus counter-narratives
  • Rethinking public spaces, collective memory, and trauma
  • Dissent and Critical Thinking: Disinformation

This session will explore the concept of dissent in our everyday life. Starting from some considerations related to the relationship between official narratives and counter-narratives, and how they engage with the contemporary, technology-influenced perception of our everyday time-space, we will consider how dissent fosters creativity, and how it can change the way in which think and live. We will present different philosophical and artistic approaches to narration and dissent, focusing on how storytelling can be used as a platform for political analysis or advocacy, and as an instrument to create a different world in which an-other way of thinking is possible.

Following a theoretical introduction, participants will be encouraged to explore dissent in their own realities, investigating different alternatives of dissent.
