<nettime-ann> Globalization criticism, what's next? Call for Papers

Dear Nettimers,

what role could Berlin play in the globalization criticism discourse? To which dgree is individual distinction productive in the course of protest? And to which degree is hedonism? Why isn't there any counter narrative to the Bush's propagandistic saga of a new beginning at the dawn of the 21st century? And to put it in a satirical way: why is the operation >Heiligendam< only an almost perfect stage set? After having faced and partly answered these questions in the recent weeks, the editorial team of Berliner Gazette demands only one more answer: the G8 summit is about to start ­ what is going to happen next?

What questions are going to emerge in the future? What issues should be brought up and discussed? How can an opposition inside the already existing anti-neo-liberal globalization opposition improve its agenda? How fruitful can such an approach, as cultivated by the Berliner Gazette, at all be? How could such a criticism possibly stay in the spotlight for a long time? Everyone, who feels that these questions and problems address him/her as well, or who would like to come up with issues and questions that productively engage upon the subject of the discussion, are welcome to contribute.

Your reactions are going to be published in the >Logbuch< section of the Berliner Gazette. Therefore we kindly ask you to send in short texts that are not shorter than 1500 and do not exceed 2000 characters. In order to forestall the festivalization of criticism, the contributions will not only be published in the immediate context of the G8 summit itself but also in the weeks and months afterwards. We appreciate a great variety of approaches and viewpoints. Please forward this message to all people who might be interested. If you?ve got any questions, ideas or statements, please do not hesitate to contact us on info[at]berlinergazette.de.
