Comments Off on This Monday at 16 Beaver — 10.13.00 — Responses to Crisis

Some remnants:
In an effort to add some fragments from previous
meetings. We are adding short descriptions that
were sent out as emails. Before March 2001, the meetings
were shared mainly through a mailing list we maintained.
Eventhough the remnants of correspondences
from 1999-2001 are fragmentary and incomplete,
they give an idea of the kinds of meetings which
were taking place and some of the different questions
and modes involved.

This Monday at 16 Beaver — 10.13.00 — Responses to Crisis

An invitation to all:

Where: 16 Beaver Street, 5th Floor
When: 7:45 PM Monday, Oct 16

We are postponing our previously scheduled program (i.e., the discussion of the Delanda and Deleuze & Guattari texts) to have a meeting and an exchange of thoughts on the events that have unfolded in the last few weeks in Israel and Palestine.

The responses to the violence have been numerous (never enough), but a platform for open discussion is a nice place to allow a dialogue to grow further. That is the idea. The practice of it will be determined Monday.

The topics for this week’s discussion will range from accounts of the situation from some invited guests to discussions that come from our own interests/questions. The question of response will be one of the issues discussed as it has been brought up by several participants in our e-mail list over the last two/three weeks.

Two weeks ago we also began discussing the role of the media and “new media” (i.e., the Internet) in influencing our experience and understanding of the current crisis while looking at the Said text. So any further elaboration on this theme will also be interesting to many.

The exact format is still being determined so we will be sending an update on Monday. If you have any questions or suggestions, please send us an e-mail.

Also, we are attempting to compile a series of editorials which we can reference on the situation, please forward links to (or contents of) any that you believe will be pertinent and thought provoking.
