The Para-Academic Handbook: A Toolkit for Making-Learning-Creating-Acting

Edited by: Alex Wardrop and Deborah Withers

2014

There is a name for those under-and precariously employed, but actively working, academics in today’s society: the para-academic.

Para-academics mimic academic practices so they are liberated from the confines of the university. Our work, and our lives, reflect how the idea of a university as a place for knowledge production, discussion and learning, has become distorted by neo-liberal market forces.

We create alternative, genuinely open access, learning-thinking-making-acting spaces on the internet, in publications, in exhibitions, discussion groups or other mediums that seem appropriate to the situation. We don’t sit back and worry about our career developments paths. We write for the love of it, we think because we have to, we do it because we care.

Merry Christmas everyone! As the holidays center so much around food, family and community we'd like to give you a little gift.

Produced by Goucher student Kylie Miller, hosted by Kylie Miller and Tashi McQueen, Featuring Eric Jackson and Floyd Godsey this podcast presents the amazing and inspiring work on Food Apartheid our brothers and sisters at the Black Yield Institute in Baltimore are doing.

The podcast is one of the many outcomes of Baltimore's Food Apartheid, a collaboration between Goucher College, Black Yield Institute and Memefest, which happened in November in Baltimore.

Montreal friends, come and join us this coming Wednesday:

Members of the Memefest Network were recently in Baltimore, USA working with the Black Yield Institute and students at Goucher College tackling the subject of Baltimore's Food Apartheid. Food Democracy/Food Sovereignty has been a focus of Memefest's work over the last few years and it was a special opportunity for us to work with Black Yield, an amazing community organisation based out of Cherry Hill who seek to "Cultivate Self-Determination Through Black Land & Food Sovereignty".

Memefest's Oliver Vodeb and Vida Voncina, who will be visiting Montreal, alongside Kevin Lo (LOKI/Memefest) are interested in presenting a public debrief and discussion on the work done with BYI and Goucher, as well as the Memefest Network and project more broadly. We invite those interested in design and media activism, radical pedagogy, food justice (and more!) to join us for a casual "salon" at LOKI's studio.

The Hong Kong protests are incredibly significant for many reasons. Not only are they exceptional as people are protesting more than six months, it is also the tactics that the protesters use that are highly sophisticated.

Here is a good article about the many subversive cultures emerging from the HK uprisings:

Description

I graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2012 with a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications Design. After a brief break to backpack through 9 countries in Asia by myself I moved across Canada to Toronto, Ontario to pursue my Master of Design at York University. My graduate research has been a visual exploration in addressing the mass commodification of factory farm animals, countering the absent referent of meat products and looking at ways to challenge the human gaze in the power dynamic between human as subject over factory farm animal as object. In the last 3 years I have had the opportunity to have a solo exhibition and a group exhibition of my work, self publish my first book on homelessness and am now working on my second, and have been invited to lecture at two conferences on the role of art direction in social cause campaigns. I have high hopes of incorporating the criticality in my creative work I have developed over the last few years into a future full time position in my field.
