Self Determined Participatory Action of Marginalized Groups: The streets of São Paulo

My master thesis is finished for now. It is available for download on this blog and at archive.org

  • thesis @ noblogs [pdf]
  • thesis @ archive.org [pdf]

update 2011.11.29: this version is the first unreviewed/uncorrected version. The text version available on this blog will already be corrected.

The introductory chapter is online already, the remaining parts will follow in the next weeks. I would like to make the whole document available on this blog, plus additional corrections, translations and content that did not enter the thesis but that I feel important and that I do not want to loose.

Let’s start with the Introduction

Writing this introduction feels a bit strange. Its is an introduction to my master thesisbut at the same time it is a retrospect, not only about the time I spent in São Paulo, as the thesis title is already revealing, but also a retrospective on what I did since then until this very moment, an imagination of this time in guise of a rhizomatic map, ‚a map that must be produced, constructed, a map that is always detachable,connectible, reversible, modifiable, and has multiple entryways and exits and its own lines of flight‘ as Deleuze and Guattari write in ‚A Thousand Plateaus‘.
