Dispositions free pdf In an age where displacement and dislocation are a common place, McKenzie Wark sets out to make the best of it. In Dispositions, he creates a way of writing that can create a sense of belonging while remaining outside of the markers of a reliable identity, whether in terms of nation, profession, gender or genre.

Wark reimagines Australian writing as a 'minor literature', traversing the world in its own way. As Mark Amerika says: "Dispositions reads like a philosophictional codework that samples vocabularies, manipulates meanings, and mixes discourses. Wark's tele-nomadic GPS blog style is an anti-memoir you won't forget."
