New PRESS Series Blog

From here on, our text arts/radical politics series, PRESS, has its own blog. Tho announcements will still (also) be put up here, the blog will be--starting in 2010-11--the storehouse for everything PRESS-related. Debrah Morkun & Rachel Zolf are our first two featured poets. Enjoy.

PS: just found out that Rob Halpern, Thom Donovan, and Stephen Collis will be giving a talk on the commons over at KSW, soon upcoming. Detalis pasted here, from Donovn's blog, a must-read for those interested in visionary poetics & radical social projects, WILD HORSES OF FIRE:

Project on the Commons at KSW

Next weekend I will be giving a series of workshops and readings with Taylor Brady, Stephen Collis, and Rob Halpern in Vancouver as part of a suite of events sponsored by Simon Fraser University and hosted by the Kootenay School of Writing having to do with notions of "commons."

Project on the Commons: A workshop with Stephen Collis, Thom Donovan, and Rob Halpern

The commons has become an important interdisciplinary site of research for political scientists and urban planners, geographers and ecologists, poets and artists, anti-poverty and anti-colonial activists. This work shop hopes to further our understanding of the commons—its limits and possibilities, its enclosure and re-appropriation—via short talks, wide-ranging discussion, and possibly some participatory “commoning.”
