Global COIN Conference Audio

Thanks to Marc Tyrrell, who’s been, errr… incognito for a little while, for pointing out the newly available audio of the University of Chicago’s 2008 conference on Anthropology and Global Counterinsurgency. I have to agree with Marc, too, on this:

I hope that any recordings (audio, video, whatever) from this years CASCA conference will be available sooner. It is hard to have an open, public discussion about issues when large amounts of the material are not available to the public either because they are hidden under a security blanket or its academic equivalent (i.e. “if you didn’t attend the conference, we don’t care”).

Well put. Interestingly, in the weeks before the conference, I’d asked one of the organizers if he’d be interested in rapporteuring it for CTlab. His response was pretty snooty, so he shall remain forever nameless and fameless.

    Hi Mike,Not "incognito"… just "incoherent" – GRIN. I’ve been pulling 16 hour days getting ready for a European tour and my head feels like it is about to explode.
