NYC Anarchist Book Fair 2009
Against Tolerance
11 April 2009
Tamiment Library

Presented by:
Matt Hern
Building on some of my recent experiences working in the Arctic and in Turkey I'll argue against tolerance and multiculturalism and for hospitality and self-determination. I want to argue for a way of working and collaborating with very different people in way that doesn't collapse values into a false liberal consensus that looks a lot like colonialism. I'll suggest some specific approaches that have worked well, and poorly, for us.

Matt Hern lives and works in East Vancouver with his partner and daughters where he directs the Purple Thistle Centre and co-founded the Car-Free Commercial Drive Festival and Car-Free Vancouver Day. He edited the collection Deschooling Our Lives and his new book is Field Day. His writing has been published on all six continents, translated into nine languages and he continues to lecture widely. He holds a PhD in Urban Studies and teaches at SFU and UBC.
