[Xmca-l] Re: Manchester Social Movements Conference - Call for Papers



Where have I been? Lurking I guess. As to 'the All Stars', a search on Google made me wonder WHICH All Stars? Louis Armstrong's band? A nursery? "All Stars Project. Inc"? a baseball team?
Perhaps Helena or someone else will come to my rescue and say our conference is a good thing, fun, etc.

Colin!

Where have you been when people were discussing social movements! Is the
All Stars a social movement? Is it part of a social movement?

Seeking enlightenment. :-)
