Interface is open-access, global and programmatically multilingual. Our overall aim is to “learn from each other’s struggles”: to develop a dialogue between researchers and practitioners, but also between different social movements, intellectual traditions and national contexts.

* Jean Bridgeman, A matter of trust: the politics of working-class self-education

* Alfredo Duarte Corte, Pensar las luchas autónomas como potencia, pensar la autonomía como categoria abierta (Autonomous struggles as power; autonomy as an open category)

* Peter Waterman, Labour at the 2009 Belém World Social Forum: between an ambiguous past and an uncertain future

A special section dialogue is devoted to David Harvey’s essay Organizing for the anti-capitalist transition, with responses from six writers: Willie Baptist, AK Thompson, Benjamin Shepard, Laurence Cox, Anna Selmeczi, Marcelo Lopez de Souza

Action notes and event analysis from:

* Anne Elizabeth Moore on The outdoor games of the 2009 Winter Olympiad at Washington Park

Key documents: Producción colectiva, En boca de todos: apuntes para divulgar historia (Everyone’s talking about it: notes on disseminating history)

This issue’s reviews includes the following titles:

* The will of the many: how the alterglobalisation movement is changing the face of democracy

DISCOURSE, POWER, RESISTANCE

Annual Conference 2010
30 March – 1 April

University of Greenwich, London

The 9th conference in the ‘Discourse, Power, Resistance’ (DPR) series will take place at the School of Education and Training at the University of Greenwich, London. The conference looks at issues of trust and distrust in the academy and beyond – in management, teaching, learning and research and in institutions and communities across cultural, social and racial boundaries.

CALL FOR POSTERS

We have set aside one hour on the Wednesday evening of the conference for delegates to view and discuss posters in a relaxed and informal atmosphere with wine and nibbles. Posters will be displayed in the Council Room of the Queen Anne Building.

Discourse

DISCOURSE, POWER AND RESISTANCE CONFERENCE 2010

DISCOURSE, POWER, RESISTANCE

Annual Conference
30 March – 1 April 2010
University of Greenwich, London

The 9th conference in the ‘Discourse, Power, Resistance’ (DPR) series has moved from Manchester Metropolitan University to its new host in the School of Education and Training at the University of Greenwich, and will be held at the University of Greenwich, London, United Kingdom, between 30 March and 1 April, 2010.

The venue is part of a world heritage site laid out in the late 17th and early 18th Centuries by Sir Christopher Wren and his successors. The conference will use the King William Building and the Stephen Lawrence Building, named in honour of Stephen Lawrence, killed some four miles away from Greenwich by racists in 1993 and now a symbol in the campaign for racial and social justice.

The title of the conference is simple: Trust. The conference will look at issues of trust in the academy and beyond – in management, teaching, learning and research. The six streams of the conference are:

– Trust and Leadership in the Academy
– Trust and Panic in Education
– Research Ethics
– Trust in the Community: critical race theory
– Faith, Belief and Truth
– The Individual in a Mistrustful World

DPR 9 will look at the troubled relationships within and beyond the academy, in the UK and world-wide, where questions of trust are crucial: who can we trust, how can we know what is true, what happens when trust breaks down in the academy, in the community and internationally? What research methodology brings us an understanding deep enough to trust, and why is this methodology so often still suspected and dismissed by managers and policy-makers at all levels?
