A Critical Theory of the Open: A Dialogue Between John Willinsky and Andrew Feenberg

Date/Time: Thursday October 21, 2010 at 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm (11:00 am – 12:30 pm Pacific Time)
Location: Live webcast available at http://tlcentre.sfu.ca/broadcast/

The theme of this event is A Critical Theory of Open in the Digital Era: Sous les pavés, la plage. Stepping for a moment beyond the open access question of the right to free online journal articles, Andrew Feenberg and John Willinsky will explore, in dialogue, issues surrounding the larger concept and spirit of open, as it tends to infuse seemingly utopian Internet developments, while drawing on their shared interest in the Critical Theory traditions of the last century.
