7 of June_ 1900 : « The luddites and neo-luddites », by François Jarrige
François Jarrige is a young historian and a co-author, together with Vincent Bourdeau and Julien Vincent, of the book Les luddites. Bris de machines, économie politique et histoire (The Luddites. Breaking of machines, economy, politics and history) (éd. Ère, 2006), which gives a synthesis of ideas about the Luddites rebellion and its successive variations.
In the conference room of the Magasin d’en face he will go back to the history of the rebellion of the beginning of the 18th century and will open up a discussion about the actual development of the movement, going into the effervescent context of Grenoble remarkable for the struggle against nano-technology and GMO.
