Conference: Shaping Europe in a Globalized World

My Green Card has finally arrived! More precisely, the “Welcome to the United States” notice has arrived. The actual Green Card machine is apparently being upgraded, so for the time being I am getting a temporary replacement card.

These exciting details notwithstanding, the Welcome notice is timely: in ten days, I am traveling to Zurich for the conference “Shaping Europe in a Globalized World? Protest Movements and the Rise of a Transnational Civil Society, ” organized by the Department of German, Zurich University. I am giving a talk on the panel about computer-based protest. My paper, based on my ethnographic fieldwork and media research in 2004-05, will analyze the campaign against software patents in the European Union.
