Steal This Conference

Ray Hudson Posse shares how he never paid for his attendance at the recent conference of the British International Studies Association (BISA) in London . He faked his conference badge and just walked in to make a point about academic conferences. He argues: “The way in which the structures of academia are chewing up and spitting out the next generation of scholars-with-no-future is most clearly expressed in the ‘conference trap’, characterised by a double-fuckery – those most in need of attending are precisely those most priced out.”
