5th International Conference, 12-14 September 2018, Loughborough
Dr Jim Donaghey presents ‘Researching punk Indonesia: notes towards a non-exploitative insider methodology’ examining sounding conflict in cultural study and practice.
The 5th Anarchist Studies Network Conference at Loughborough University, aims to breach new frontiers in anarchist scholarship, and encourage cross-pollination between disciplines. The central theme for this conference is DECOLONISATION. The purpose is twofold: to stimulate discussion of colonialism and racism as forms of oppression that anarchists oppose, but which continue to be felt in anarchist organising; and to welcome individuals, groups and communities who have not previously participated in ASN events. By recognising the legacy of non-western and anti-colonial thought and action in the anarchist tradition, they wish to strengthen the ties between contemporary anarchists and decolonial theory and practice in the struggle against oppression, and to use the recognition of racist and Eurocentric practices and mind-frames to open up the event to marginalised groups.
