3pm discussion of Biopolitics of Second Life, Creating New Worlds

With Brian Holmes and Rubaiyat Shatner, come and participate!

Virtual worlds present an interesting challenge and possibility, that of creating something totally new. The alter-globalization movement has similar goals, of creating a “world where many worlds fit”, rethinking how we live our lives, engaging in biopolitical action. If the contemporary form of power is biopolitical, in that, life itself, every moment of our lives, has become an object of power, then how can we reimagine ways of living that escape or challenge that power? Come and talk to us about it. Brian Holmes is an author and activist who has written much about the alterglobalization movement and Rubaiyat Shatner (James Morgan irl) has been researching self governance in Second Life.
