Program - This is the most up-to-date version of the 2017 KFLC program. Cancellations will be updated as we receive them.

There is also a PDF version available for download.

Whenever a participant has neither confirmed nor denied their attendance, or is a no-show, the title of the panel is highlighted in red; however, no panel will change time slots nor space. If a presenter is a no-show, the moderator will decide how to address the vacancy.

Also, a few panels are still seeking moderators. The PDF will be updated with their info as the conference date approaches. If you are in one of those panels and would like to moderate, please express this to Jacob Neely at kflc@uky.edu.

Descripción:
Hoy por hoy es frecuente encontrar activistas universitarios y colectivos, gestados antes y durante el 15M, argumentando la necesidad de una democratización de la producción y distribución de conocimiento que ponga fin tanto al paternalismo intelectual como a su apropiación exclusiva del ámbito de los saberes. Desde ALCESXXI nos hacemos eco de estas preocupaciones y proponemos esta mesa redonda para analizar, mediante una conversación abierta, libros y nuevas propuestas y prácticas culturales que tratan, de diversos modos, de advertir sobre estos problemas en la cultura académica.
 
Participantes:
Txetxu Aguado, Katarzyna Beilin, Susan Larson, Ana Luengo, Annabel Martín, Luís Martín Cabrera (Skype), Ellen Mayock, Iñaki Prádanos, Steven Torres y Palmar Álvarez Blanco.
