5 December 20237:00 PM – 8:00 PM (AEDT) 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM (CET)8:00 AM – 9:00 AM (GMT)AbstractPretending in politics is viewed with suspicion. But in our paper, we want to identify and articulate the positive contributions of pretending and pretence in democratic life. Taking inspiration from Richard Sennett's observation that the presentation of a mask can enable the exercise of 'creative powers... the powers of play', we develop several ways in which such 'powers of play' can contribute to, and be supported by, democratic practices. We will discuss the importance of maintaining a distance from the self for reasons of protection; pretending for the purposes of emphasising differences of opinion (devil’s advocate, role-playing in deliberation); as a way of adopting another's perspective; and as a way of enhancing or diminishing the adversarial dimensions of political interaction; and more. We aim thereby to develop an account of good democratic performance, including performance that appears to be bad but might in fact be good, and to distinguish it from the un-and-anti democratic uses of persona and performance that motivate the widespread suspicion with which we began.This seminar will be chaired by Simon Niemeyer.About the authorsAlfred Moore is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Politics at the University of York. He is the author of ‘Critical Elitism: Deliberation, Democracy, and the Politics of Expertise’ (2017, Cambridge University Press), and has written widely on the politics of expertise.

In 2020 and 2021, he held a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for the project ‘Rethinking Political Competition,’ and he is currently researching the role of ideas of competition in democratic theory and practice.Michael Mackenzie is Jarislowsky Chair in Trust and Political Leadership at Vancouver Island University. He was previously Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh and has researched and written widely on democratic theory and practice. His recent publications include ‘Future Publics: Democracy, Deliberation, and Future-Regarding Collective Action’ (2021, Oxford University Press), and ‘Democracy and the Future: Future-Regarding Governance in Democratic Systems,’ edited with M. Setälä and S. Kyllönen (2023, Edinburgh University Press).

Soul powerhouse Allen Stone has announced Australia and New Zealand dates for December 2023 and January 2024 as part of the Off The Beaten Path Tour.Allen Stone's journey to becoming a successful musician started in the small town of Chewelah, Washington, where he was raised on gospel music and spent much of his childhood as a pastor's son, watching his parents lead their congregation in song. After dropping out of college, he made the move to Seattle to pursue his music career, often driving up and down the West Coast in his '87 Buick to perform at any and all gigs he could find. Stone quickly gained a reputation for his powerful live performances, and over the years, he has played up to 200 dates per year, building a devoted following along the way. His unique ability to channel sensitivity into his songs while radiating hope and promise has endeared him to audiences worldwide. Stone's ability to blend various genres, including soul-pop, folk-rock, R&B, and funk, is evident in his five full-length albums, from his 2010 self-released debut album "Last To Speak" to 2021's "APART."

East Coast metalcore ensemble The Acacia Strain utilize a bone-crushing rhythm section, apocalyptic samples, and a unique triple-guitar assault to deliver their signature blend of hardcore, noise, and death and doom metal. Emerging in the early 2000s, the band found success in 2008 with their fourth full-length effort, Continent, which soared to the top of Billboard's U.S. Heatseekers chart. Subsequent efforts like Death Is the Only Mortal (2012), Coma Witch (2014), and the horror-themed semi-concept LP It Comes in Waves (2019) continued to snap necks in the metal community with brutal efficacy. The Acacia Strain signed to Rise Records in 2012, releasing Death Is the Only Mortal by year's end. Longtime member Laskiewitz left the band in 2013, and was replaced by Devin Shidaker and Rich Gomez, both of whom contributed guitar to The Acacia Strain's seventh full-length album, 2014's Coma Witch. In early 2017, the group issued "Bitter Pill," the first single from their eighth studio long-player, Gravebloom, which arrived later that June. In late 2019, the band released It Comes in Waves, a doomy, taut, and atmospheric seven-song set with single-word song titles that, when put together, construct the sentence "Our only sin was giving them names." The following year saw The Acacia Strain issue a series of pummeling 7" releases (A, C, E, D, Y) that went on to form (and spell) the full-length Slow Decay, which arrived that summer.
