71st Conflict Studies in the Humanities Research Seminar -- "Space and Movement Styles"

2011-7-9 (Sat) 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

The 71st Conflict Studies in the Humanities Research Seminar -- "Space and Movement Styles" will be held on Saturday, July 9 as a part of the "Traversing Popular Culture" Research Project of Osaka University's Global COE Program.
NARITA Keisuke, the manager since 2004 of the info shop Irregular Rhythm Asylum (IRA) in Shinjuku, Tokyo, will be our guest speaker. Irregular Rhythm Asylum is a information center where information on social movements and alternative culture is collected; it also carries a variety of avante-garde products such as self-produced music, fan magazines, and T shirts. Moreover, the "asylum" functions as a forum where people involved in various movements and cultures can interact.
While the control over public places such as roads, parks, and universities has increased, social movements have striven to restore and provide autonomous space. Social centers produced in Autonomia movements in the 70s in Italy were bases for social action and places connecting such movements with daily life. The centers also brought joy to the movements. In this seminar, listening to his talk on this info shop, participants will discuss possible future social movements.
