Adapting to Transform Networked Conflict
How complexity is our biggest asset
by emmi bevensee and frank miroslav
We are thrilled to launch our first short essay series on the topics of complexity, resistance, and networked conflict. Scroll down for more info.
In the age of mass networked revolts spurred in part by advances in information technology, the call to update our frameworks grows more urgent. Through the lens of complexity, we tease out some of the strategic benefits of modernized perspectives on conflict and resistance. With this understanding, we can map out better and more realistic futures.
The full series is also available in multiple formats or as individual posts.
- Printable Zine format (double-sided, short-edge binding)
- EPUB, Mobi, and torrent can be found on our Archive here.
