I wanted to make a quick plug to a small morning event we’re organising at Royal Holloway’s central London quarters on the 3rd December, and we’re delighted that Derek Gregory is going to join us. This event is limited to 25ish people, mainly our new MSc and MA students and other postgraduates. The purpose is to engage with Derek’s work in particular conversation with his ‘Lines of Descent’ paper published in OpenDemocracy last year. The paper also resonates with the article Derek wrote for our Theory, Culture and Society special section on Air-Targeting and a chapter for our book From Above, due out with Hurst next year. An interview should be forthcoming soon, also for TCS.
