Doing politics: gathering and meeting, talking and writing

doing politics is free to access at

I wanted to write about politics as ‘a mode of doing’, as something grounded in the activities of embodied, situated human beings, and my text is centred on practices of gathering and meeting. I wanted to write differently, in a way that respects the integrity of all the sources I used, and in a way that those who do politics themselves might recognise. I wanted to produce something that looked good, and then make it available, as far as I could, to anyone who wanted to read it.

I’d be glad to know what you think, of course: please get in touch just as you’d like to. And if you’re able to forward the link to your colleagues and networks, that would be great. Thank you.
