Marginalia: “Who the F#@k is Jacques Ranciere?” 

Dear classmates... I present to you this divine/profane piece of philosophical analysis. What follows is essentially a repost of a wonderful wonderful post on Critical-Theory.com: Who the F#@k is Jacques Ranciere? This is my kind of philosophical criticism.

Marginalia: B is for Backchanneling 

In discussing the application of critical pedagogy in today's class, one of the points we raised regarded identifying the techniques for disrupting the staid dynamics of classroom conversation (the monolithic lecture, the ephemerality of speech, the inscrutability of 'engagement', the tendency for dominant voices to silence quieter ones, the premature abandonment of salient points, etc): …

Manning, Relationscapes.

Norman McLaren 

In his work, McLaren explores the feeling of movement moving. He asks: How do we activate this feeling, and keep it active in perception? To make incipiency appear. Erin Manning, Relationscapes, 214.

C’mon, Drop a Vase 

The latest on the case of the dropped vase... My read on this is Ai Weiwei is not at all clear that his piece could hardly ask any harder for someone to drop a vase, and that conversely Maximo Caminero may have no idea that he was simple doing what was suggested, statement of political …
