RECONFIGURATIONS: Readings & Conversation on Radical Learning with Ugly Duckling Presse Pamphlet Authors

Watch video here


How can radical communities and models of learning shape our broader spheres of exchange? In four new pamphlets published by Ugly Duckling Presse, Nicole Cecilia Delgado, Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves, Nuraini Juliastuti and Fiky Daulay of KUNCI Study Forum & Collective, and Magdalena Zurawski trouble hierarchies of school and classroom, introduce new practice and devotion into the space of study, and ask what might be otherwise in the ways we gather and consider. Each will read from their respective pamphlets, followed by a moderated conversation.

Enthusiastic readers of this work are encouraged to purchase pamphlets from our friends at Ugly Duckling Presse:

Of Forests and of Farms: On Faculty and Failure (Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves)

A Mano / By Hand (Nicole Cecilia Delgado)

Letters: The Classroom Is Burning, Let's Dream about a School of Improper Education (KUNCI Study Forum & Collective)

Being Human Is an Occult Practice (Magdalena Zurawski)

In 2020, UDP is publishing twenty pamphlets of commissioned essays on subjects close to UDP’s commitments — collective work, translation, performance, pedagogy, poetics, and small press publishing — each offering a different approach to the pamphlet as a form of working in the present.
