Social capital and the horizons of change


1.) Given the centrality of social capital in participation, in what ways do we see social capital related to both the material and symbolic dimensions of inequality?

2.)  The debates between co-optation and social change, as well as the status quo versus structural transformation, have been discussed from various angles throughout the readings in recent weeks. Yet, what becomes the role for activists, scholars, and communities engaged in change efforts once desired changes have been met? Does change necessarily mean a move from margin to center, and if so, what new challenges arise from this relocation in social, political, and economic space?
