Organised Networks: Transdisciplinarity and New Institutional Forms

Organized Networks: Transdisciplinarity and New Institutional Forms by Dr. Ned Rossiter

A video of a presentation from the Finnish Social Forum, Helsinki, 1-2 April 2006 'Autonomous Research' seminar:

"It's therefore important to remember that autonomists are not
somehow operating outside the state but rather operating as
disruptive potentiality whose difference is defined by relations of
negation, refusal, exodus, subtraction, etc. Certainly there are
important qualitative differences in the relation individuals and
peoples have with the state. Think, for instance, of the experience
of migrants and so-called illegal movement of peoples across
territories, or the precarious worker. Precarity, let's remember, is
an experience that traverses a range of class scales, and may even be
considered as a post-Fordist technique of border control that
distinguishes 'self-managed exploitation... from those who must be
exploited (or worse) by direct coercion'.[see. Angela Mitropoulos and
Brett Neilson, 'Exceptional Times, Non- Governmental Spacings, and
Impolitical Movements
', Vacarme (Janvier, 2006)]" Ned Rossiter
