Abstract

Students sometimes struggle with theoretical perspectives in political theory, feeling that theory is somehow displaced from the understanding of the everyday world. Many movies are based on theories or assumptions about the world and society, which students can relate to as something tangible. In the last few years, the approach of using movies as a tool for teaching political theory has gained popularity. Therefore, this Panel seeks Papers that draw the connection between movies and political theories – also offering space for projects that are in process.
