Banners, Chants and the Poetry of Revolution

from Al Jazerra 2 September 2012"The uprisings in Tunisia were started neither by political action nor a military coup led by officers or opposition parties. Instead, the blade raised against the regime was made of banners and chants. And none cut more deeply than Abu al-Qasim al-Shabbi's poem, The Will to Live, which begins: "When the people demand freedom, Destiny must surely respond." This…See More

Tim Cresswell, Soil (Poems) Published June 17, 2013.

"In my academic work I am looking to embrace a more creative side that is not so clearly charted out. I want to share thoughts and have no interest in confusing readers or obfuscating – but I do want to give readers of my academic work a choice of outcomes rather than insisting that they follow my logic. I have just started to play around with this following some of the writing experiments of Walter Benjamin in particular. I increasingly have very little time for the kind of writing that is…See More

Hi Achirri,

Thanks for a note. Well, i might not contribute something at present, the reason is that i am working on a book manuscript on ethnography of Nepal's Maoist movement and that is supposed to be published next year. By the way you may look at my recent writing which published in a Kolkata based journal. The below is the link; http://www.frontierweekly.com/views/sep-14/19-9-14-Nepals%20Election.html

Would like to share in forthcoming days. Would like to know what is yours current work on.

Regards,

Pavan Patel

Hello Iris,

That's been long I haven't stopped here - I've been so snowed over with my coursework.
The e-mail is achirri@yahoo.co.uk An attachment would do.

Hope your work is going great!

Hello Achirri, thanks for the push - but at this point I have never written any ethnography myself and thus it would be helpful for me to read the discussions. I am about to start about to get started on my first ethnographic writing and may have questions/discussion points soon... Till then - i hope to learn for all you guys :)

I liked 'mangling' too, of course.

I like your poem about Levi-Strauss: is it mangling or bricolage?

Hi Achirri,

Hope you can contribute to the debate.
