"The Politics of Small Things is a wonderful little book... It is heartfelt, even moving in places... It is neither technical nor boringly conventional, but boldly assertive and engaged." Daniel Chirot, American Journal of Sociology

Co-presented with CalArts' graduate Aesthetics and Politics Program
