Barnard's original series continues with Kimberly Marten, department chair and professor of political science, and Shayoni Mitra, assistant professor of theatre. The discussion will uncover political networking, power configurations, and political expression through performance. Mitra focuses on political theater under different configurations of power, specifically in Delhi, India. The history of political theater links directly to public space and who has access to cultural expression and citizenship in a global city. Marten's current work analyzes Russian foreign and security policy: how Putin's informal personal networks influence key political decisions, and how informally networked organizations impact both Russian state sovereignty and international security. Join us for an interdisciplinary conversation filled with unexpected connections.
