Annual Theme for 2020-2021: Collectives

From political parties to literary coteries, from fan groups to sports teams, from terrorist organizations to online groups, our collectives, associations, and communities are multiform and complex.

How do we band together and why?

In teaming up, how does membership of a collective affect one’s own agency and standing – what do we lose, what do we gain?

Can collectives truly be agents and how do group dynamics emerge?

How do we balance the interests between collectives, of individuals and collectives, and of the individual within the collective?
