This event is free to attend!
The talk starts from the 2017 book “The discursive-material knot” (DMK) (see nicocarpentier.net/dmk) to reflect on both the material and discursive components of participation, and how they are entangled. The talk will then focus on participatory theory (offering a re-reading through the lenses of the discourse-material knot) and the two main (and competing) models that conceptualize participation, namely participation-as-taking-part and participation-as-sharing-power. In the third part of the talk, this discussion on participation will then be illustrated through the struggles over the memorialization of the Cyprus Problem, and how both interactions and participations can offer forms of resistance towards the hegemonic antagonistic ways of remembering.
