    • y-ning? (full movie)


      from emilie upczak Added 703 1 0

      This academic music video explores “wining” as a dance language with a history and identity born out of the Caribbean experience. In particular, it looks at the body in motion as well as elements of Trinidadian society that are represented in the way people dance and the various ethnic influences on the dance itself.

      • Bruno Latour and 'individualising overlapping networks'


        from Nyx, A Noctournal Added 184 0 0

        In his lecture at Goldsmiths on 7th March 2012, Bruno Latour took up Tarde's critique of Durkheim in their seminal 1903 debate (of which he also recently performed a re-enactment). In his attempt to move beyond the false individual/collective self dichotomy, Latour propounds the idea that the digital makes obsolete this endlessly debated partition, which he characterises as one of the main futile worries still occupying the majority of social scientists to this day: that one should either start with the one or with the whole, as if mutually exclusive. Similarly accused, as Tarde was, for being an individualist (playing into the hands of post-Fordist ideology even), Latour defines his re-search as one of 'individualising overlapping networks': that is to say, addressing the very features that are present and in common between differing Leibnizian monads. In his proposition to re-examine Tarde's only-recently translated Monadology and Sociology (2012), Latour is attempting to follow and extend Deleuze's admittance of a debt to the early 20th century 'pure sociologist' for one of his main theses in Difference and Repetition: difference that would not extend, or ‘would not have to extend’ as far as opposition and contradiction; [and] a concept of repetition in which physical, mechanical, or bare repetitions . . . would find their raison d’être in the more profound structures of a hidden repetition in which a ‘differential’ is disguised and displaced. (Deleuze, 1994, p. xx). The question raised by Latour, then, might be seen as how to continue to do sociology after our existence as individuals or as peoples is put into disrepute. One might wonder, however, what value sociology holds once its disciplinary borders are opened, and whether its questions and methods still have any relevance within this altered framework.

                  from Kyle Johnston Added 76 1 0

                  I shot video during a trip to Puerto Rico for a cultural studies class. For the class we were told to keep a journal of our time there. Once we got back I asked the other students to read from the journal while I recorded them. I then put some of the video I had taken together and used the other students' journal entries to narrate the video.
