Lecture by Avery F. Gordon, Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Visiting Professor in the Birkbeck Department of Law, University of London, "Collective intelligence and preparation: a story of running away"

An old story of running away is retold and the question is raised of what happens if really there isn’t any new information to report, the runaways ate their fake papers resolving to Own nothing! and the first-person accounts are still missing. Will this old story that cannot be verified be of any use to those looking for escape routes today? In this talk, I will present some items from the Hawthorn Archive that focus on the story of Eliza Winston and make a couple of general remarks on running away.
