A slight departure from normal.
I’ll be appearing at Banner Repeater on Saturday 17 March.
How it’s kicking off everywhere.
Discussion with Paul Mason, Nathan Charlton, and Andrew McGettigan.
1-3pm Saturday 17th March, 2012.
Discussion between Paul Mason, financial journalist and economics editor for Newsnight and recent author of “Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere”, Nathan Charlton, technologist and director of Big Ideas, and Andrew McGettigan, author of the blog Critical Education and the book “The Great University Gamble” (Pluto, forthcoming)also of the Big Ideas team. We will be considering how the technology that facilitates the vast consumerism of capitalism is at some core level, implicit also in our ability to act politically, and how that affects our understanding of what it is to be politically engaged, with respect to older hierarchical structures and former traditions that may come into question as a result.
