Insurgent Research: Looking for Autonomy in the Production of Knowledge with Social Activist and Post-Development Theorist Dr. Gustavo Esteva

Super awesome event real, real soon:

The Foucauldian challenge to the institutional production of
“truth” (the statements governing our behavior) is not coming from
universities or research centers but from social movements: insurgent
research, militant research, reflection in action…from Colectivo
Situaciones in Argentina to Unitierra in California or Chocosol in
Toronto, autonomous centers for the production of knowledge are
proliferating. Is this an ephemeral, marginal fashion? What is the
role of these centers in the current wave of mobilizations? Do they
represent alternative, valid ways of knowing?

BRING YOUR LUNCH!

Co-sponsored by the Adelphic Educational Fund, Infoshoppe Collective, Ajúa Campos,
Hermes, Occupy, Center for the Americas, LAST, Academic Affairs, the
Service Learning Center and the Sociology and Anthropology
departments.

More super awesome details after the jump.
