begpost, GFM, help an undocumented survivor of domestic violence reunite with her daughter for the holidays!
"Jiyoon hasn’t seen her daughter, Yura, since September. Her abusive ex-boyfriend, who has full custody, has always used his custody over Yura to coerce and manipulate Jiyoon... This time, it came within days of Jiyoon’s mother in Korea passing away—whose funeral she could not attend due to her legal status."
A Suggestion On How To Move Forward: Surveying
Surveying is a collective and cooperative reading method. If interest is made manifest (through responses to this post), I propose we organize a preliminary meeting in December 2021, and begin surveying texts of interest in 2022.
In short: we choose a text that is a priori complex and we share it among the participants. Everyone reads their part, then we meet to discuss it collectively, share, criticize, open the reading to our own experiences.
Stemming from French working-class culture at the end of the 19th century, land surveying was put into practice by resistance fighters during the Second World War, then disseminated more widely by various popular education movements until today. The survey is not just a summary or an analysis; it also makes the link between theory and practice, between reading and experience.
It therefore stimulates cooperation but also the highlighting of differences in interpretation, and encourages participants to reflect on a subject beyond merely reading out of interest in the subject itself. Beyond its analytical interest, surveying is also a dynamic and proactive working method, far from the analyzes of classic texts and their preconceived criteria.
