Auteur: Collis, Stephen
Titel: Dispatches from the Occupation
Sub titel: A History of Change
Somewhere at the core of almost every intellectual discipline is an attempt to explain change: why and how things change, and how we negotiate these transformations. These are among the most ancient of philosophical questions. In this collection of essays, award-winning poet Stephen Collis investigates how the Occupy movement grapples with these questions as it once again takes up the cause of social, economic, and political change. Dispatches from the Occupation opens with a meditation on the Occupy movement and its place in the history of recent social movements. Comprising the second section of the book is a series of "dispatches" from the day-to-day unfolding of an occupation. Finally, the book closes with something of a long prose-poem tracing the theme of change from the "cradles of civilization" through our era of modern social movements.
