Support Professor Ward Churchill. Stop the Inquisition.

20-02-2007 00:20

The following is an essay that deconstructs the charges of research misconduct that were leveled against Ward Churchill - charges that were obvious retaliation for his comments concerning 9-11.

Please take the time to read this report. Internal appeals are now underway and it is possible that Ward Churchill may be fired from his tenured position at the University of Colorado at any time now.

If this happens, we cannot let it go unchallenged.....

Affective Knowledge & Alternative Media, some audio

19-02-2007 17:43

The following audio was taken during a session at the Knowledge Lab event. It is titled 'Affective Knowledge & Alternative Media' and explores the relation between the conditions of the world and how our feeling for others makes us feel in certain ways. Comment: This session turned out to be more about feminist critical theory than either its application to / or / about the alternative media. Very much a philisophical question, than a practical application of technique. Which, I feel, would have been more useful.

Audio reports and background from the 4th KnowledgeLab

19-02-2007 12:00

Audio The 4th Knowledge was held at Nottingham University
Over 50 people came together over the weekend at Nottingham University for an event called 'the Knowledge Lab'. The event is aimed at bridging the gap between activism and academia to reflect in a more indepth way on various issues, this time based around 'Knowledge'.

Workshops were based around questions such as 'how do we know'? what is knowledge'? 'where do we gain our knowledge from'? 'does someone hold control over our knowledge'? 'how does gender affect knowledge'? 'how does education effect knowledge'? 'how are our senses affected by advertising and the media'? 'how can suppressed knowledge be released into the mainstream'? Other sessions included a presentation on alternative education projects, an Indymedia session showing people how to use the website and publish news, and an experiment in anarchism called SOMA - Consensus decision making without the mind/body split.

We recorded an interview with one of the organisers of the event and a chat with a 'knowledgelab-regular' about the history and aims of the knowledgelabs. The last recording is part of a session called Open Spaces for Dialogue and Enquiry (OSDE) which looked at knowledge, what it is and how our knowledge is affected.
