The moments of political and economic crisis in Argentina in 2001, specifically the 19th and 20th of December, do not merely mark an event, a day, or even a year. Rather 2001 is an active principle, a key to thinking about this past decade from the perspective of the crisis of neoliberalism between impasse and insurrection. It is a method, a way of looking by seeing the crisis in motion and in time. It becomes a premise with its multiple meanings, spaces, and temporalities.
Colectivo Situaciones is a collective of militant researchers based in Buenos Aires. They have participated in numerous grassroots co-research activities with unemployed workers, peasant movements, neighbourhood assemblies, and alternative education experiments. Their most recent book, 19 & 20: Notes for a New Social Protagonism, is published by Minor Compositions and is available at: 

"[19 & 20] by Colectivo Situaciones composes the fragments of a global discourse, founding on the basis of the experiences of the Argentinean struggle a style of inquiry that is directly the organization of struggle."                                                  Antonio Negri

Generously supported by SFU Institute for the Humanities, SFU Centre for Global Political Economy, SFU Teaching and Support Staff Union, SFU School of Communication, UBC Latin American Studies, SFU Liu Institute for Global Issues, and the Capilano University Liberal Studies BA Program
