Hegemony: Explorations into Consensus, Coercion and Culture

Unicentre Function Rooms
Special Guests:

Alastair Davidson (UOW)
Plus many other staff and postgrads from UOW

This event is a small (30 people) workshop designed to enhance our understanding of hegemony by bringing in selected academics from outside this university. We have very limited room and an even more limited budget, so the workshop is by invitation only.

The papers are works in progress and we are hoping to use the knowledge and experience of the invited academics to clarify our own positions on this challenging field of inquiry. Discussants will be critiquing these papers with a view to bringing out certain common themes. The paper writers are staff and postgraduate students from the Faculty of Arts at the University of Wollongong.

All papers that are on the website are ³Draft only ‹ Not for publication or citation without the permission of the author². The reason for this is that we are hoping that certain, if not all, papers will be revised for publication in some form. We will be informing the International Gramsci Society when any proceedings from the workshop become available.

We are interested in collaboration with other academics investigating hegemony from a variety of disciplines and would be pleased to collaborate in the future on other projects.

Yours sincerely
