    Abstract Human beings tend to adapt to and even identify with the concepts, practices, beliefs and norms that preserve cultural hegemony; sometimes to such a degree that they embody and defend the structures that maintain power imbalance and discrimination, with their own doing, acting, knowing, relating, being and becoming. Understanding how 'natural' it is for discriminated people to identify with the cultural hegemony that disadvantages them, whilst they could, at the same time, fervently aspire to a more empowered reality, is important knowledge for participatory design that is grounded in emancipatory intentions. Without know-how however, such knowledge remains impotent: participatory design scholars engaging emancipatory work, need to be able to facilitate the complex and layered trajectories of personal and social change that emancipatory participatory design will set in motion. In this workshop, a self-concept will be shared that can make these often confusing and contradictory processes visible and communicable. Participants will have the opportunity to 'try this concept out' in practical exercises and discuss its theoretical grounding and implications with the group. This half-day learning workshop is open for every one to register on a first come first served basis. Maximum participants will be 16.
