Micropolitics Updates: Autumn 2008 and The Sensible At Work

Micropolitics Autumn 08

THE SENSIBLE AT WORK
Micropolitics Mondays
Beginning 13 October 6:30 PM
Housman’s Bookshop, 2nd floor

5 Caledonian Road
Kings Cross
London N1 9DX
(Directions at: http://www.housmans.com/contact/index.htm)

Building on lessons learned from past visitors, this year the Micropolitics Research Group will take it slowly…
Departing from our drifts, narratives and fables of our experience of Post-Fordist life and labour, we will elaborate concepts from what Suely Rolnik calls the ‘sensible mutations’ found within our current regimes of value production. How do provoke frictions and counter-conducts, structures of support, and other forms of value, for ourselves and with others? How might we intervene into the formats and processes that manage expectations, relationships, the production of knowledge and social care?

Part seminar, part analytic support group, Micropolitics will meet on the second Monday of each month.

OUR FIRST MONDAY SESSION:
Monday, 13 of October 6:30 PM
at Housman’s Bookshop, 2nd floor

5 Caledonian Road
Kings Cross
London N1 9DX

This first session will include an introduction to group processes led by Brazilian Occupational Therapist
Elizabeth Maria Freire de Araújo Lima.

Beth teaches at the Medicine Faculty of Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP); is coordinator of the Study and Research Laboratory “Art and Body in Occupational Therapy” at the Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy Department, FMUSP, São Paulo.

Beth has asked us to read the following short text:
