“Is there a power that is not always already fucked up?” – Always Already Podcast
Critical Theory Chicago is hosting a book discussion about Hegemony and Socialist Strategy by Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe. First published in 1985, this text is still influential today for discussions about power and pluralistic liberal democratic theories. Find the book at your Chicago Public Library, your local book store, buy it online, or view a PDF online. CTC previously discussed the introduction and the first chapter of this book back in September: The Archaeology of a Silence: Hegemony and Socialist Strategy.
