Conner Habib is a man of many hats, but if there’s one thing he’s been at the forefront of, it’s been his sharp, philosophical appraisals of the cultural pulse of Western civilization. I first discovered Conner through our mutual interests in the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, Anthroposophy, and the late biologist and Lindisfarne fellow Lynn Margulis (known well for her work on symbiogenesis and her collaboration with James Lovelock on the Gaia Hypothesis). Conner has recently put together a four-part online workshop, “The Culture of the Current: A Workshop for Facing the World We Live in Now.” It’s kicking off Sunday, July 31st.
Reflecting on the development of his class, he writes:
One of my great ambitions is to create new models of education that work in and are relevant to the world we live in. To be honest, I was always a little afraid to construct my own long-term course. But after years of work, I’ve finally gathered the vision and confidence to do it. The Culture of the Current is my in-depth, intimate, interactive, and network-creating online workshop on creating a politics and theory of the present day. The description below will lay it all out for you (and I’ve included some photos of thinkers whose work I’ll be drawing on). It’s limited to only 20 participants and it’s going to be great. So read the description below and sign up here. Onward!
Many of the points on Conner’s workshop page align strongly with what we’re doing here at Metapsychosis, creating a platform for conversations to take place around said “culture of the current.” So, read the event page and consider grabbing yourself a virtual seat for the workshop (who wouldn’t want to take a workshop where Latour, Steiner, and Margulis are drawn from, together?).
