A Theory of Quotidian Politics

(p.25) Chapter 2 A Theory of Quotidian Politics

Michael Hanchard

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 further develops the concepts of micro- and macropolitics, situating them in a political continuum, and developing a broader theory of quotidian politics, the politics of daily life. The theorization of quotidian politics identifies the borders of culture and politics, yet also offers two distinct forms of politics within a broader definition. The first type of politics defined is macropolitics, the dimension of political life where the powerful are most dominant and where the expression of politics in its institutional forms is most prevalent. The second type is the politics of the weak, which is less formal and more, in the words of Antonio Gramsci, “fragmented and episodic”, forged in conditions of denial, repression, prohibition, and negative sanction. The chapter also accounts for the themes, concepts, and theoretical parts of black politics and black-worlds.

Keywords:   micropolitics, macropolitics, quotidian politics, Antonio Gramsci, black politics, political life
