open wi (Quebec student strike)

November 8th, 2012 § 0 comments

Earlier this spring I was heavily involved, both academically and in the streets, in the Quebec-wide student strike. Several of us at the Mobile Media Lab at Concordia decided to put out a special “open” issue of wi: journal of mobile media. This resulted in two issues, which I co-edited with Owen Chapman, Alison Reiko Loader, Ben Spencer and Kim Sawchuk.

To celebrate the strike ending, these two issues & a special issue of Theory & Event — Printemps Érable – Quebec’s Maple Spring of 2012— Volume 15, Issue 3 Supplement – Fall 2012, edited by Darin Barney, Brian Massumi, and Cayley Sorochan, we threw a party at Alexandraplatz & I made a short video with Safia Siad of the party.
