During November several of the BRHG mob made their way to New York where they gave a few talks and attended the MN30 conference to mark 30 years of the Midnight Notes collective.
On Thursday 12th November BRHG gave a talk about how the group operates and what we do at the Brecht Forum called Radical History “From Below”. The day after this Roger, Anny, Millsie and Rich gave talks on their chosen specialist subjects at 16 Beaver, the title of this evening was Why History Matters… & Why Radical History Matters More Part 1, video and audio from these lectures have been added to the archive. On the Saturday the mob attended the Midnight Notes MN30 conference where Roger moderated and spoke on a panel, several other members of the mob chipped in at various points. On Sunday 15th November Dan gave his now legendary Corporations talk at Why History Matters… & Why Radical History Matters More Part 2 which was held at Bluestockings Bookshop, this was followed by a shorter version of the talk we gave at the Brecht Forum.
We are greatly indebted to all of the people who made this trip possible with special thanks to Malav from Bluestockings, George Caffentzis and Silvia Federici. Also thanks to all of the people who put us up including Autonomedia, Francesca, Kev and Dara from the Just Seeds collective and Cleggolicious. If we broke anybodies liver while we were in New York we are very sorry.
