[Nettime-bold] call for short report/paper/note on WSF, Porto Alegre

dear nettimers,

we at 'ephemera' (, the electronic journal for critical dialogues on organization, culture and society, would
be very keen to publish a short but critically reflective report/paper/note on the world social forum, porto alegre, brazil, which
is about to end.

questions that could be of interest are:
what were the main controversies? is there a new sense of hegemony of the anti-globalisation movement developing? what about the
relationship between violence and the organisation of real change? was the WSF about ANTI-globalisation? if not, what sort of
globalisation was being advocated? what are the main theories and assumptions behind 'the movement', can they be challenged? how
was the WSF organised? are such monumental conferences the way forward in terms of organising change?
sorry, these are just some ideas.

if you would be interested in writing something for us, then please get in touch ASAP, as we'd like to include this in the
forthcoming issue.
