LD MarApril - Right to Housing

07 February 2017 - 10:58 AM

Resolved: The United States ought to guarantee the right to housing.


Figured I may as well put a thread up for the LDers on here. Discuss. This is my state and NatQuals topic, so I'm gonna have some fun coming up with neg strats on this. I'm thinking an Agamben K on the neg, and for aff maybe Necropolitics?

Borderlands K?

31 January 2017 - 05:29 PM

See title. Someone at our next tourney is running it, I have no idea what it is, aside from it's kind of like mexican identity politics + colonialism. Anyone have experience with this?

Red Pedagogy AC - Roast Me

28 December 2016 - 02:15 PM

Any criticisms/advice would be really appreciated, not a huge SettCol debater, and when I do run it I just use anarcha-indigenism. Thanks a ton in advance!


Note: This is a really rough draft, some of the cards will be slightly cut down, namely the bataille evidence.

Hegemonic Knowledge Production RotB

27 December 2016 - 10:08 PM

So on the LD free speech on college campus topic, I'm looking to write a red pedagogy aff. I have all the link evidence, impacts, etc., but I can't really seem to find any good evidence for hegemonic knowledge production. Does anyone have any evidence I could use for something like "RotB is to deconstruct hegemonic knowledge production?" I can trade for it. All the stuff I've found so far is Fem-K specific, doesn't really work for SettCol. It'd also be great if I could get some evidence on how adressing modes of knowledge prod. precedes policy. Thanks a ton in advance!
