Next weekend I will be giving a series of workshops and readings with Taylor Brady, Stephen Collis, and Rob Halpern in Vancouver as part of a suite of events sponsored by Simon Fraser University and hosted by the Kootenay School of Writing having to do with notions of "commons."

Project on the Commons: A workshop with Stephen Collis, Thom Donovan, and Rob Halpern
The commons has become an important interdisciplinary site of research for political scientists and urban planners, geographers and ecologists, poets and artists, anti-poverty and anti-colonial activists. This work shop hopes to further our understanding of the commons—its limits and possibilities, its enclosure and re-appropriation—via short talks, wide-ranging discussion, and possibly some participatory “commoning.”
