Product Description

MARCH is pleased to announce its third print edition Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals, edited by KUNCI Study Forum & Collective and designed by Celcea Tifani and Tasia Loekito. For Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals, KUNCI have invited education practitioners from diverse learning spaces to share their tools, which have been developed through collective learning practices. At least for those who reside amid the proliferation of collective practices in the Global South, talking about and sharing tools means talking about and performing the redistribution of power—a power that is most likely derived through the process of knowledge accumulation. Talking about tools also means talking about things one finds in places like public kitchens, village meeting halls, slaughterhouses, and residential gardens—places where theory and its methods are rarely found, whether on the ground or in quotidian conversation. Building on their educational initiative the School of Improper Education, KUNCI uses cross-referencing as a framework to provide a grounded understanding of local study contexts while also engaging in the mobility and connection of people, ideas, tools, and institutions that, in turn, multiply the frame of references in each implicated study practice. Inhabiting the space of sharing and collectivity, this multiplication creates a commons-based production of knowledge rather than a centralized accumulation of intellectual property. All contributors to this publication offer alternative forms of studying that are fundamentally practiced as a mode of sharing and nurturing alternative
publics or counterpublics.

Contributors include Al Maeishah, Fawaz, Feminist Search Tools, Sanchayan Ghosh, Moelyono, S. Soedjojono and Sindhusiswara, Sima Ting Kuan Wu, and Chen Yun.

Edited by KUNCI Study Forum & Collective, founded in 1999 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. KUNCI experiments with methods of producing and sharing knowledge through acts of studying together at
the intersections between affective, manual, and intellectual labor.

MARCH is published with The Luminary, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in St. Louis, MO (US).
