Dimensions of Power


This piece was developed by Dr Irene Lorenzoni for an undergraduate module in Environmental Politics and Policymaking, in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia.

It portrays three key theorists in the historical development of understandings of power relationships in society, as they discuss a contemporary or historical event and each interpret it in their own way.

Performer and PhD student Viviane Gravey writes about it in her blogpost here, and together with fellow performer Brendan Moore, they presented it as an example of innovative teaching at the international conference of the UACES (academic association for contemporary European Studies), Bilbao, September 2015.
