One of the most crucial parts of democracy is the idea that anyone can be represented. This representation however, can be limited in some ways. In this discussion group we will discuss the subaltern, or groups that have no ability to represent themselves in a government. Their history, opinions, and lives therefore become lost. Through the ideas of scholars such as Gayatri Spivak and Jon Beverly, we will discuss the subaltern, and how do we account for their history, their lives, and their political power in current philosophical and historical thought.
Theory Reading Group, a collaboration between California State University Fullerton, Sigma Tau Delta, and 1888, is a bi-weekly meeting of the minds to explore the art of thought and storytelling. Please come with the reading selections finished and your notes primed for exchanging ideas. For questions concerning topics and reading schedule, please contact Chenglin Lee.
