Reading David Farrell Krell on Derrida and our Animal Others | Progressive Geographies

Reading David Farrell Krell on Derrida and our Animal Others | Progressive Geographies.

Stuart Elden has some thoughts on Krell’s latest. I just got it myself last week. I haven’t worked on Derrida’s last two seminars (the subject of Krell’s book) since I read them for the sections on sovereignty. Kelly Oliver’s latest book also takes up the sections on animality at some length, so this is a good chance to dive back in (well, next month: first up is a couple of lectures I’m giving in the next month and finishing up the introduction to the Meillassoux Dictionary).

CBC radio show Documentary tonight on solitary confinement

Tonight, Tuesday, Sept 3

9pm on CBC Radio 1

If you’re beyond the airwave, you can livestream the show here:



When the concept of solitary confinement was first implemented in the early 19th century, the idea was not to punish the prisoner, but to give him space to reflect, reform, and flourish. Two centuries later, despite the growing use of segregation in Canada and the United States, the practice produces very different results. Prisoners who have lived through segregation say the experience is torturous. Freelance journalist Brett Story explores the long-term effects of solitary on the mind, and on society.
