“Life after Co-Optation”

When we hear that a group has been “co-opted,” many images come to mind-few of them positive. We think of the co-opted as sellouts, traitors, and hypocrites; we expect them to be weak and domesticated. Through my research into co-opted opposition parties in authoritarian North Africa, I show that co-optation is not the end of a party’s political story. In this talk, I weigh the evidence for and against quid pro quo understandings of authoritarian politics, explore the power of narrative to create political outcomes, and ultimately argue for a more nuanced understanding of co-optation.

Bishops on the Border: Immigration and the Church in Arizona – The Rt. Rev. Kirk Stevan Smith – Friday, November 8 – Tutt Library Event Space – Noon – Potato Bar Lunch – calls us to think about the possibilities opened by historical study. Kirk Smith completed a History PhD at Oxford and Cornell, then went to Yale Divinity School. He served for a while as Episcopal priest in an upscale parish Connecticut, then was called to a poor community in LA. He subsequently became bishop of Arizona; where he recently stepped down to teach at General Seminar in New York. He is an important voice in the church’s advocacy of immigrants and co-wrote a book on this topic with Roman Catholic and Methodist colleagues.

HISTORY CHALLENGES US TO PERFORM JUSTICE. That is Smith’s story. Come to lunch with him (potato bar) and find out about “Bishops on the Border.” Tutt Event Space, noon, November 8th

Applications on Summit for all summer block away programs and summer away aid will be open from October 31 through December 2. The Summit process will be both your program app and your application for financial aid. This is no longer a first-come, first-served system, as all students who complete their applications by Dec. 2 will be considered for financial aid. It is important to complete your application during the Oct. 31-Dec. 2 window in order to be considered for possible financial aid awards. Program acceptance and aid awards will be announced only after the December 2 deadline.

Some faculty require interviews prior to accepting students to their program, so please contact the appropriate summer block faculty member to ask about acceptance or program requirements. If you have questions about the summer block away and aid application, please contact Shiyanke Goonetilleke in the Center for Global Education & Field Study.
