1968 toujours

with 10 comments

Wonderful:

In the context of numerous student occupations of their universities
and mass demonstrations, the seminar Marxism in Culture has organised
a special session on 17th December at the Insitute of Historical
Research, Senate House, 5.30. All welcome.

‘Cultures of Occupation and Demonstration: 2010/1968/1917’

With
Warren Carter
Gail Day
Steve Edwards
Esther Leslie
David Mabb
Nina Power
Alberto Toscano.

As far as I understood it, MIC had invited some of the actual students to speak at this event… I guess the invitation has been rescinded. Apparently, instead, the students who’ve led the most successful student occupation / demonstration in decades are supposed to show up and listen to their olders and betters lecture to them about 1968. Can’t wait, I’m sure…

Update: Sorted. See the comments. Was an oversight, apparently, on the part of the organizers. Can’t wait to hear the students speak in a different context. The new roster, as far as I know it:

 

Sofie Buckland

Warren Carter

Steve Edwards

Esther Leslie

David Mabb

Alberto Toscano

and other Students from the Occupations.

  1. The blogosphere is doing a tremendous job of keeping me abreast of the current events in the UK through a variety of sources and perspectives, but you appear to have a total monopoly on the petty and embittered angle.

    • Well, Giovanni, that’s because I am often “embittered” lately. I am embittered by kids with their skulls basically broken, embittered by venal journalists, embittered by incessant 1968 comparisons etc etc. Luckily though the blog is only the late night outlet for that stuff…. My days are another matter and I’m doing the best that I can with them.

      The things seem petty because, yes, they are local issues of concern… But they are issues of concern. If you want panoramic coverage of the events I suggest you look elsewhere.

      And by the way, it looks like the issue with this seminar is sorted. In part because I got very fucked off about it – but others definitely helped.

  4. My comment keeps being eaten…. No students were uninvited, they were accidentally left off the list in the rush to publicise the last-minute event. Apologies to them.

  5. The session is more of a roundtable discussion with no contribution to last more than five minutes. Nina Power and Gail Day are no longer speaking (Gail is chairing though). All are welcome!

  8. Sorry about the comment problems too. You hit an old filter on the name of a university that I’ve had from when I was more concerned about the anonymity of this blog.
