Power and resistance Soc. Lecture 10/11 - Under what conditions do we participate in, encourage, tolerate, passively accept or ignore our laden situations in which people suffer are harmed? Laden – justice - Under what conditions do we refuse to participate in or accept these situations and resist or oppose them? - Power is not dyadic - a two party or binary or 0/1 relationship. The world does not consist simply of victims and perpetrators - The systemic and structured social order is what matters, not just the individuals in a two- way encounter. - The big picture directs us to a more accurate assessment of power. - How do we calculate the amount of power an individual has? – social order matters to sociologists, not just the individuals (two-way encounters) o Because the presence and exercise of organized unwanted power is a feature of all known societies thus far. o Domination never appears without resistance to it. Resistance: - To the exercise of unwanted power is a constant in every society. - Can be infrapolitical, ie, off the radar of formal politics, protest that takes place behind the back, silently, quietly…. Pilfering – take something close from you… workers, feeling like they are not paid enough, take pens home - Or organized into collective social action, social movements, insurrections, rebellions, and resolutions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
