I just sent out an email a couple of hours ago regarding a book launch that
we are doing with Cristina next Thursday, March 21. Check out CounterSpin
tonight if you want to know a bit more than emails can say.
Details for the book launch below.
Octopus Books Presents
Norman Paterson School of International Affairs
Hear her talk about her new book
Civilization & Violence: Regimes of Representation in Nineteenth-Century
(University of Minnesota Press)
Thursday March 21, 2002
Octopus Books, 116 Third Ave.
Civilization and violence are not necessarily the antagonists we
presume with civilization taming violence, and violence unmaking
civilization. Rojas develops a new way of understanding not just the
history of Colombia, but also broader narratives of civilization.
March 21st is International Day Against Racism. Part of defeating racism
is education. Come & learn more with us.
Wine & cheese will be served.
Wheelchair accessible, although the washrooms are not.
