Reading for 10/26

Last week we were apparently so enthused in talking with each other that we completely forgot to resolve on our next reading. Accordingly, we press on with Vaneigem. I’m late posting this week, so let’s keep the reading especially brief and just do the final section of The Impossibility of Communication — “Mediated Abstraction and Abstracted Mediation” (begins on pg. 77 in the PM Press edition). That will set us up nicely to start the next section in subsequent weeks.

Reminder that if you’re planning on participating in next month’s BASTARD Conference (and you should be), presentation descriptions are due by Friday, November 5th. We still need one or two more presentations to fill out the schedule, so seriously consider taking part, even if you’ve not done so in years past. Only you can prevent familiar faces from beating dead horses!
