The Devil & The Detail: Why We Need To Talk About Power – Sebastian Heid

October 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm BST
Sebastian Heid

Populism, global warming, culture wars, fake news, open any newspaper and it is easy to find someone writing about one or several of these as symptoms of a general crisis. COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter protests are challenges to systems that leave many people feeling helpless. The left blames a resurgence of the right, the right blames a conspiracy of the left, the people in the middle can happily blame both sides. But all that blaming is perhaps expressing a sense of helplessness.

So, why is it so hard to talk about power? Starting from my personal struggle with understanding power, I came to see three main stumbling blocks: the way power is experienced, the kind of stories we tell about power, and the way how challenging these stories challenges the way we think about ourselves.

The sessions are being recorded live as part of the onlinevents interview programme and will be able to view in the onlinevents CPD Library.

When we talk about power in relationships, between people, or different groups of people, the situation becomes even more complicated, because there is no symmetry in the way we experience power.

So, why is it so hard to talk about power? Starting from my personal struggle with understanding power, I came to see three main stumbling blocks: the way power is experienced, the kind of stories we tell about power, and the way how challenging these stories challenges the way we think about ourselves.

The complications that come with potentially asymmetrical experiences of power show what a challenge it can be to make sense of those experiences. This becomes all the more a problem when we try to fit these experiences into narratives that don't match them.
