New in the Blog Series
Our new series, Other Terms, Other Conditions has been launched! It brings together contributions that introduce non-English terms to disrupt established modes of theorising in so-called Western sciences. The aim of the editors, Endre Dányi, Clément Dréano and Gergely Mohácsi, is to contribute to the discussion on the political and theoretical effects of traversing between English and other languages. In the first entry, Jakkrit Sangkhamanee and Casper Bruun Jensen take the reader to Thailand where terms like curry (Kaeng; แกง) are meant to cause confusion and subversion during democratic protests.
