Next meeting & next year

1 Comment

So, on Friday December 13th in The Glen (Glengower Hotel) on the seafront at 6pm, we propose to propose to read:

Wapner, P. (forthcoming, 20014) Sacrifice. In Carl Death (ed.) Critical Environmental Politics. Routledge, Abingdon. [Copy from Kelvin (kelvin.john.mason at gmail.com)]

And here are some suggestions for next year:

Taylor P. (2013) Putting theory to work – a.k.a ‘if you don’t like academia, why don’t you leave?’ Ephemera. http://www.ephemerajournal.org/sites/default/files/pdfs/contribution/13-4taylor.pdf

 and/or Bloom, P. (2013) Fight for your alienation: The fantasy of employability and the ironic struggle for self-exploitation. Ephemera. http://www.ephemerajournal.org/sites/default/files/pdfs/contribution/13-4bloom.pdf

Keen, David. ‘War and Peace: What’s the Difference?’ International Peacekeeping 7, no. 4 (2000), pp 1-22.

and/or Kühn, F.P., 2012a. The Peace Prefix: Ambiguities of the Word ‘Peace’. International Peacekeeping, 19(4), 396-409.

 And Chatterton, P., Featherstone, D., & Routledge, P. (2012) Articulating Climate Justice in Copenhagen: Antagonism, the Commons, and Solidarity. Antipode 5(3) 602-620

We can discuss these and other suggestions (we could do with some audio-visual stuff as well as non-academic activist stuff) and finalise a list with dates when we meet 🙂

One thought on “Next meeting & next year

  1. 13 December and beyond:

    1. I’ll try to be there on the 13th, but no promises (granddaughter and parents having just arrived).

    2. I wonder if we could discuss the role of journalism, vis-à-vis Jeremy Scahill, of Dirty Wars fame – book, film (no play, yet)? Perhaps we could watch the film and discuss afterwards? Meanwhile, see interview

    and talk from the Socialism 2013 conference (www.socialismconference.org):
