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.
