Event Title

The Impact of Categorization on Early Societies

Date

April 2020

Description

Prior to the development of categorization and acknowledging physical differentiation, tribes and communities lived in peace. These nomadic and sedentary societies had primary focuses on their land and people and developing new ways to progress. It was the introduction of this theory of categorization and division, however, that negatively shifted global interaction. To fully understand this shift we must understand the reasons for introducing this concept. This presentation suggests that the introduction of categorizing social constructs was the catalyst for the development of interlocking systems of oppression and the resulting lack of cooperating efforts.
