In Chicago, Compass Collaborators are initiating a weekly or bi-weekly infrastructure reading group. We meet on Sunday afternoons around 4pm in the Logan’s Square area. After the meeting and discussions we will eat dinner, and sometimes watch a video.
We welcome more participants. Please contact duskin (forestmongrel(at)gmail(dot)com) if you are interested in joining us!
Most of us have been studying infrastructures in some form. The reading group offers the opportunity for recollecting and reflecting through shared readings and discussion. A gathering that might stimulate modulated approaches to our practical engagements in, entanglements with, and succor from infrastructures.
In our conversation at the preliminary gathering several idea clots linger with me. I wrote the following responses the day after the meeting.
