THE FESTIVE SEASON

Happy Christmas!

And all Best Wishes for 2013!

Good to see that the ancient Mayans got their sums wrong!

My blogs here to All that is Solid for Glenn Rikowski will be resumed in the New Year.

Next year, I intend to write more stuff of my own (and not primarily for students, either) – rather then just advertising other people’s!

I am a real person! Someone suggested that this is some kind of automatic left-wing advertising website, with no actual living blogger in the background!

Palabras de los editores

Un plan

Era una tarde fría de un jueves de septiembre de 2007. Llegamos al departamento donde se alojaba Ana junto a su familia. Esa tarde era la despedida, porque debía volver a Inglaterra. Nos encontramos entre juguetes, mate, facturas, sándwiches, familiares y amistades.

Días antes habíamos empezado el plan. Se nos había ocurrido una idea loca. Había sido en un instante fugaz, de esos que suceden en el éxtasis generado por lecturas irreverentes, por aquellos textos que dejan la planicie de las letras para provocar relieves en nuestras vidas. Puntos de fuga. Salidas al más allá. El plan se ponía en marcha, sólo faltaba una cómplice clave.

En medio de la reunión, nos retiramos unos minutos con Ana para conversar en privado. Allí fue cuando juntos, susurrando, como si estuviéramos armando una bomba, lanzamos nuestro plan.

— Ana, queremos traducir The Labor Debate. Es un texto fascinante y nos interesa que sea parte de las discusiones que circulan de este lado del charco. Por eso este libro tiene que ser editado en castellano. Nosotros nos encargamos de las traducciones.

Ana respondió afirmativamente. El plan se ponía en marcha. Su sorpresa y agradecimiento fue tan motivador como los textos mismos.

A los pocos días Ana nos confirmó que conseguiría el dinero para la publicación: Michael Neary, el otro compilador de la obra, fue quien se encargó de ello. Con esa noticia en nuestras manos reunimos a un grupo de traductores amigos: Carla Poth, Florencia Martínez, María de las Nieves Puglia, Mariana Carrolli y Nicolás Harambour. Junto a ellos se sumaron otros traductores y las manos estoicas que hicieron posible la publicación del libro, editando, terminando y realizando las traducciones faltantes, como así también enseñándonos el camino del quehacer editorial. Nos referimos, pues, a Francisco Paco Sobrino, Carlos Pipo Cuéllar, Sibila Seibert, Ignacio Chiche Vázquez y Néstor López.

Un cronopio llamado El Trabajo en Debate

El texto que estamos presentando desde Herramienta pertenece a esa rara especie de cronopios cortaziano. El mismo constituye un debate que tiene una forma muy particular: cada autor parece estar escuchando una misma canción al tiempo que hace su propio baile. Se conforma así un bricolage en el que el trabajo es puesto como el fuego que da vida. El debate nos recuerda que el trabajo, como el sol, se esconde en la inmensidad del firmamento para aparecer a través de la luz más destacada en la noche, la(s) luna(s), aunque ella misma ya no sea el sol.

Herramienta desde hace varios años se ha dado la tarea de dar a conocer una serie de autores que proponen un debate en y desde el marxismo en múltiples direcciones. Son autores que han dado lugar a esa dolorosa incomodidad teórica llamada marxismo abierto. Así Debate sobre el trabajo forma parte de un esfuerzo emprendido por Herramienta que –explorando el campo abierto por los compañeros y compañeras de dos revistas que han dejado su huella en la izquierda argentina, Cuadernos del Sur y Doxa– encuentra en este texto el incentivo para continuar la discusión en torno a un tema que parece haber sido olvidado en las ciencias sociales y que a su vez ha recibido un desigual tratamiento al interior del propio marxismo: el trabajo.

Son estos autores-cronopios los que, explorando la categoría trabajo, nos llevan a ver en ésta mucho más que una realidad empírica; nos trasladan con esta categoría hacia el estallido de las teorías famas y de las realidades empíricas. Son, en definitiva, autores cortazianos que nos provocan la sensación de que al terminar de leerlos sabemos que la única seguridad con la que contamos es la de estar viviendo en un mundo que resulta insoportable, y que, aunque no lo queramos, eso mismo que lo vuelve intolerable es nuestra producción.

Por ello, para el colectivo que conforma Herramienta es una alegría muy grande impulsar la edición de este libro. No sólo por la calidad de los textos, ni por la amistad que a nos une con los autores. Lo es porque seguimos reforzando el lugar que ocupa Herramienta: aportar al debate sobre el cambio revolucionario.

Desde la editorial queremos fervientemente que El Trabajo en Debate se transforme en una herramienta para el debate intelectual, militante y académico. Esta aspiración no es casual: nos encontramos hoy en un momento en que la teoría ha vuelto sobre sus pasos para refugiarse en la fuerza de lo constituido, en las “teorías seguras”. Asimismo, la práctica militante parece recostarse en la certeza de las formas constituidas. Pareciera ser que nuevamente nos encontramos ante el ocaso (del pesimismo) de la seguridad. Sin embargo, los textos que conforman este libro, a pesar de haber sido escritos hace ya diez años, contienen la actualidad de mirar allí donde la fuerza del presente encuentra su fortaleza en la irrupción del pasado no realizado. Dicho con otras palabras, el texto que estamos presentando no sólo posee vigor por los temas tratados, sino porque representa un modo teórico en el que la lucha contra lo constituido se produce desde la incomodidad de lo no sido aún.

Insurgentes – Steven Wilson

 

 

As those familiar my MySpace Blog, Wavering on Ether* will know, I am a keen fan of the music of Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson. I bought Wilson’s first solo album Insurgentes two days ago and have since been entranced by the music. I recommend most highly this album; not only to PT and Wilson followers but to all those that like beauty, towering craftsmanship, social edge, prescience, glorious dreams and images, and care and advanced skill with production in their music.

 

The words “musical genius” can sometimes be thrown around lightly. However, for me, they would not be misplaced regarding the works of Steven Wilson. Insurgentes includes the dynamic and kaleidoscopic percussion work of Gavin Harrison, and a most welcome contribution from Dave Stewart on one track.

 

Eighteen months ago, I wrote Fear of a Blank Planet Revisited. This was inspired by and, to some extent based on, the lyrics of Porcupine Tree’s Fear of a Blank Planet album. The article shows how the B Generation of policymakers and lawgivers have visited chaos and burdens on the youth of today**.

Renewing Dialogues in Marxism and Education – Openings

By Anthony Green, Glenn Rikowski and Helen Raduntz

Published by Palgrave Macmillan – 2008

Endorsements for this book:

 


“This book demonstrates the continuing relevance and importance of Marxist analysis. There has been a significant, but until recently waning, tradition of neo-Marxist work in British educational studies. This collection announces a new beginning for this tradition. A very impressive set of contributors offer a series of theoretically sophisticated and substantively timely papers-papers which are rooted in solid scholarship and open debate. There is no doubt that this volume will attract considerable attention in the U.K., U.S. and elsewhere, and rightly so. It makes absolutely clear how necessary and constructively disruptive theory is!”—Stephen Ball, Karl Mannheim Professor of Sociology and Education, Institute of Education, University of London.

“Renewing Dialogues in Marxism and Education provides an intelligent summary of past perspectives, current dilemmas and future directions that, until now, has been available only across the dispersed articles and debates that were set in a state of steady boil by Green and Rikowski’s path-breaking ‘Renewing Dialogues’ seminar series. The artful balance of theory, policy, politics, and empirical research has and will continue to expand the boundaries of Marxist Educational thinking. Its spirit originates in the classic dialectical relationship of undogmatic, open, critical thinking and an optimism that a better future is there for the making. Invaluable to researchers-Marxist or otherwise, the co-editors have produced a new ‘must read’ in the educational studies discipline.”–Peter H. Sawchuk, Professor of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

“Green and Rikowski have assembled an impressive group of scholars to renew the dialogue around issues of Marxism and education. With a resurging international interest in Marxist theory and its relevance for our current situation in the shadows of neo-liberal economic policies and neo-conservative social policies, this book could not arrive at a more timely moment. This collection promises to offer some of the best analyses of contemporary educational policies and practices available anywhere.”–David Gabbard, Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of East Carolina

 

“This is the sort of volume that educators striving for greater social justice should eagerly anticipate. Their work is rigorous, theoretically sophisticated and attests to their social commitment.”–Peter Mayo, Professor, Sociology of Education and Adult Education, University of Malta and co-editor of Gramsci and Education, Liberating Praxis, and co-author of Learning and Social Difference

“The ‘Marxism and Education: Renewing Dialogues’ seminars are one of the important–if not the most important–sites for the advancement and application of Marxist scholarship to the educational arena. This book will immediately become a key text for critical scholars with interests in: (1) Marxist educational thought; (2) the impact of globalization and neoliberalism on schooling, teaching, and learning; and (3) the discourses of postmodernism, poststructuralism and their intersections with Marxism. This collection of papers includes many of the key scholars in the field and will certainly generate broad interest among critical education scholars in the U.K., North America and the rest of the English-speaking world. The past decade has seen a rejuvenation of interest in Marxist scholarship in education, particularly in North America. Green and Rikowski’s collection is perfectly timed and will surely become the subject of much attention when it appears, as it will be a key source for the cutting edge Marxist analysis and critique of contemporary educational policy and practice.”–E. Wayne Ross, Professor, Department of Curriculum Studies, University of British Columbia

“Green and Rikowski have edited an extraordinary and timely book, one dedicated to ex­plicating such key pedagogical issues as globalization, postmodernism, Marxism, and reform. It is a must read not only for critical educational scholars, but also for anyone in­terested in the meanings, statuses, and causes and effects of recent and historical devel­opments in educational philosophy, policy, and practice—especially for those committed to democracy, democratic schooling, democratic social change, and social justice. In the end, Renewing Dialogues in Marxism and Education brings together the work of leading educational researchers in a remark­able and fundamentally new and exciting way.”–Kevin Vinson, Associate Professor, College of Education, University of Arizona

“This volume is exactly the kind of re-encounter with Marxism that is needed by educational theorists at a time when neoliberalism is imperilling the public space of schooling-one of the last remaining public, genuinely civic spaces worldwide. The five parts of the volume seem to provide a perfect set of foci for the project that the editors want to carry out through this book. This will certainly be of great interest to academics studying globalization, as well as to activists, educators and educational theorists.”–Imre Szeman, Senator William McMaster Professor of Globalization and Cultural Studies and Director of the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition and Associate Professor of English & Sociology, McMaster University

MICHELE ROBERTS: NOVELIST AND RADICAL FEMINIST

By Ruth Rikowski

Ruth Rikowski has written an article on Michele Roberts: Novelist and Radical Feminist which can now be viewed at The Flow of Ideas web site (the Rikowski family web site). In this article, Ruth indicates how she first experienced Michele Roberts and her writings at the CILIP Members’ Day, and goes on to draw parallels between Roberts’ life, social and political views and her own. For both Michele Roberts and Ruth Rikowski, the love of writing shines through and throughout their lives.

Glenn’s articles, many of which were written for his students at the Volumizer, will be preserved at The Flow of Ideas.
