Julian Reid Seminar @ PAF 13 – 15 August

August 12, 2011

Reading list etc. for Julian Reid – yeah – tomorrow seminar starts only 16.30 – be there or miss the war.

Tomorrow 13 August Julian Reid professor at Univ. of Rovaniemi starts up a new three days session at PAF. After three days with Nina Power – we are ready – having gone down the protest lane, charged into capitalism as religion – add to that more Benjamin his writing on violence – and day three we address work or rather non-work. We are now ready for war – or at least to engage with its thinking – running around with Foucault, Deleuze and believe it or not Butler. We have sharpened our knives, brought out the AK47’s from the cupboard and are very happy to have Julian in the ring.
