Pembroke Center

The Pembroke Center at Brown University is an interdisciplinary research center that fosters critical scholarship on questions of gender and difference, broadly defined, in national and transnational contexts.

2016-17 Pembroke Research Seminar

The 2016-17 Pembroke Research Seminar will be lead by Bonnie Honig, Professor of Political Science and Modern Culture and Media.  "Anti-War! Theaters of War/Politics of Refusal" will look at anti-war activism through a theoretical lens, drawing especially on the contemporary turn to a "politics" of refusal," an emerging body of theoretical literature that has not thus far been extended to, or tested by, anti-war activism.
