Rogue Humanities

In the absence of a center or institute of humanities at UBC, Carla Nappi introduced the “Rogue Humanities Center” to Vancouver not as an institutional body, but more as an assemblage of floating reading/writing/making groups composed of scholars, artists, and academics who were tired with institutional structures.  I was part of the Gestures Branch where we started out by reading Vilem Flusser’s “Gestures”, and by the time the center came to an end, we were reading Manning/Massumi’s “Thought in the Act” with a piece of Chinese poetry.

Rogue Humanities migrated to Pittsburg with Carla Nappi.  Its sister center is on its way to be introduced to Vancouver by Eldritch Priest.
