New Forms and Forums: How Press Cooperatives Are Launched and Why It's a Good Thing

Shirley Steinberg, David Smith


David Smith (videographer) and Shirley Steinberg (McGill University) will discuss with session participants the challenges and enthusiasms involved in establishing a thematically based journal network (using the recently formed Gramsci Press Gang), growing out of a global collaboration among centers of interest in the work of critical pedagogy and Paulo Freire. Participants will be invited to consider ways of establishing new areas of inquiry, and new forms of multimedia representation, in the face of existing systems for publishing, grant-making and other aspects of scholarly life.
