Experimental Geographies

"There is tenderness only in the coarsest demand: that no-one shall go hungry any more" – Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia (1974: 156)

Closure of Middlesex Philosophy

I’m a bit late in posting this but many will already have heard the dreadful news that Middlesex University is planning to close its Philosophy Department. A Facebook group has been set up here. A petition to save the Department can be found here. The campaign website can also be accessed here. There are already a number of good commentaries. Leiter’s blog, Future Thoughts, Necessary Agitation, and Progressive Geographies are just a few examples. Nina Power has also written a CIF piece for the Guardian. Many of the comments below the line are – as has been the case in recent months – predictably myopic.

Additional details can also be found at the infinite thought blog including all the details regarding the email campaign.
