What is the role of culture, ideology, values and beliefs in maintaining ruling class power? This two-part seminar will explore key concepts developed by revolutionary leader Antonio Gramsci that address how social groups gain, expand, and maintain their power to lead. We will pay particular attention to art and culture and its use to shape popular perspectives on race, class, and inequality in U.S. society, and we will discuss ways to develop culture that can help us build a new and unsettling force that can counteract ruling class cultural hegemony.
