The Culture, Power and Politics Section will promote the study of cultural politics and of culture in/of relations of power in a broad sense as well as of the politics and power of/in culture. It will be a space for the exchange and debate between different positions, as well as for the development of collaborative relations among its members. This dialogue, debate, and collaboration should be enhanced through an examination of the epistemological, political, and theoretical differences existing between some of our perspectives as: cultural studies, subaltern studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, political economy, politology, political/cultural sociology, social/political/cultural anthropology, literary studies, communication and media studies, and history, among others.
