Consentsus: An Open Research Project on Consent, Collaboration & Consensus

consentsus workshopConsentsus is an open research project, contributing to a critical feminist theory of consent and connecting it to collaborative production and consensus. Through interviews, workshops and events, Consentsus explores the questions:

  • What is missing from current definitions of consent? How is consent produced and manipulated?
  • Beyond "yes means yes", what would a radical theory of consent look like?
  • (How) could a feminist critique of consent be applied to other types of collaboration and decision-making?

The project concluded with a series of public events in July 2013 and the production of a democratically-edited publication. For more information see the Consentsus website.
