February 8: In Visible Crisis - A Collective Visioning of Militant Research

In this one-day participation event, teams of activists, artists, and academics from Los Angeles and New York aim to set a collective agenda for militant research practice in the year ahead. "Militant research" is research carried out with social movements to think about social change. It questions the nature, practice, formats and outcomes of research.

With the global financial crisis already five years old, and perhaps permanent, how can we best visualize the crisis of the 99%, from personal debt to climate change to recovery in the face of disasters like Fukushima and Sandy? What still remains out of sight, whether concealed or overlooked?

Four sessions will set these questions into specific contexts. The day will be facilitated by Suzanne Collado, Christina Daniel, and Marisa Holmes, but the real agenda will be set by you. At this event we will all be there to learn from each other and to share ideas and insights. There is no "audience."
