Thousands of copies of Turbulence 5 are available in Copenhagen, ahead of next week’s UN Climate Conference. (A Danish translation of the issue’s editorial article is available here.) Copies will be distributed to various points across the city, so keep an eye out and grab a copy. If you would like to take a bundle to distribute, or to take back to your corner of the world, that would be great! They’re available from Folkets Hus (trans. ‘People’s House’).
Here’s the address:
2200 København N, Denmark
And here’s a map.
Go to the cafe and ask to get some copies from the garrage.

We’ll be distributing thousands of copies of Turbulence 5 around the Copenhagen Climate Conference later this month. Ahead of the Summit, here’s a Danish translation of the Turbulence editorial, ‘Life in Limbo?'(The English original is here.)

Issue 5 of Turbulence, ‘And now for something completely different?’, is out and online now. You can order copies from us at editors[at]turbulence.org.uk
A collection of resources to help promote the issue are available here.
Issue 5 of Turbulence will be officially launched at the Historical Materialism Conference in London (November 27-29, 2009). The event will take place at the School of Oriental and Asian Studies (SOAS), Thornhaugh Street, London, WC1H OXG. The Turbulence editors will present the issue and the core problematics it attempts to address. John Holloway and Angela McRobbie will be the official ‘discussants’ on the panel, and we hope to get a conversation going with everyone who comes along. The panel will be chaired by Matteo Mandarini.
The conference is organised by the Historical Materialism journal and is an increasingly important location for discussion among the critical-Marxist left and beyond. This year’s conference is titled ‘Another World Is Necessary: Crisis, Struggle and Political Alternatives’. The event is free and open to the public, but prior registration is required (see website below). A suggested donation for this self-funded event, for those registering in advance, is £40 waged and £15 unwaged.
