See here for directions.

• Are you researching Occupy or contemporary social movements?
• Are you involved in Occupy or other forms of activism?
• Are you interested in using research to take action towards creating other possible worlds?
• Are you keen on research which respects activism?

This one day convergence will focus on the ethics of researching within-and-beyond the Occupy movement. We would like this to be the beginning of an ongoing conversation about the ways in which research can complement, inform, challenge and present social movements and radical politics.


Here’s Three Chords, Now Form a Journal: Brighton June 7th
:: A Book Release / Discussion ::

Cowley Club, 6PM
12 London Road Brighton BN1 4JA

Book Release & Discussion with McKenzie Wark, Richard Gilman-Opalsky, and Stevphen Shukaitis

In the thirty years since Dick Hebdige published Subculture: The Meaning of Style, the seemingly antithetical worlds of punk rock and academia have converged in some rather interesting, if not peculiar, ways. A once marginal subculture documented in homemade ‘zines has become fodder for dozens of scholarly articles, books, PhD dissertations, and conversations amongst well-mannered conference panelists.

At the same time, the academic ranks have been increasingly infiltrated by professors and graduate students whose educations began not in the classroom, but in the lyric sheets of 7” records and the cramped confines of all-ages shows. And taking up the call to learn three chords and form a band, academics in recent years have extended DIY tactics into the academic world in terms of anything from autonomous publishing to free schools.

Come join us to celebrate the release of Punkademics, a collection of essays exploring the bastard convergences-mutations of punk rock and the academy.

Report from France:
Recent Developments in the Class Struggle

Friday, May 11, 2012, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
The New School, Room 716, 6 East 16th Street, NYC

The speakers are militants of the Groupe d'Action pour la Recomposition de l'Autonomie Proletarienne (GARAP), based in Paris but with some members elsewhere in France. Founded recently, this small formation and its revolutionary perspective are primarily inspired by anti-statist and anti-authoritarian Marxism. Its members are blue, white-collar and unemployed workers, as well as students.

The group believes that the struggle of the proletariat in France is contained by the left and far-left parties (in the first case, the Stalinists and the Social Democrats and, in the second case, the Trotskyists)--the latter being well placed in institutions and especially at every level of the major trade-union federations. Only struggles that confront those forces of containment have the potential of confronting capital effectively.
