What is politics?

The course raises questions concerning what the political is made of, how it is constituted. The intention is to ‘open up’ the box of politics/the people/borders/administration etc. - concepts we use daily without truly reflecting on them. The contention is that in recent decades their meanings have changed. We, nevertheless, tend to stick to customary interpretations and understanding, which hinders meaningful reflections on societies and on the political. This has the implication not only to avoid a truly critical stance and to tend to work with established clichés, but also to re-create these clichés themselves.
