reading for 3/24

this week we have a 2002 interview by PLW of Michael Taussig, who wrote Mimesis and Alterity, and The Devil and Commodity Fetishism, among other titles.

 

 

from wikipedia: The Devil and Commodity Fetishism in South America is both a polemic about anthropology and an analysis of a set of seemingly magical beliefs held by rural and urban workers in Colombia and Bolivia. His polemic is that the principal concern of anthropology should be to critique Western (specifically, capitalist) culture. He further argues that people living in the periphery of the world capitalist economy have a critical vantage point on capitalism, and articulate their critiques of capitalism in terms of their own cultural idioms. He thus concludes that anthropologists should study peoples living on the periphery of the world capitalist economy as a way of gaining critical insight into the anthropologists’ own culture. In short, this polemic shifts the anthropologists’ object of study from that of other cultures to that of their own, and repositions the former objects of anthropological study (e.g. indigenous peoples) as valued critical thinkers.

reading for 3/10 continuing with PLW

The Caravan of Summer

Something of the real difference between pilgrim and tourist can be detected by comparing their effects on the places they visit. Changes in a place—a city, a shrine, a forest—may be subtle, but at least they can be observed. The state of the soul may be a matter of conjecture, but perhaps we can say something about the state of the social.
Pilgrimage sites like Mecca may serve as great bazaars for trade and they may even serve as centers of production (like the silk industry of Benares), but their primary “product” is baraka or mana. These words (one Arabic, one Polynesian) are usually translated as “blessing,” but they also carry a freight of other meanings.

POTLUCK!
7-8 pm, for those of you who believe in that sort of thing.

this month will be celebrating peter lamborn wilson, an anarchist writer of many interests and many decades, the main entry in the category of arationalist anarchists (a new label! yay?)…

we are starting out with his best known and perhaps most influential (although to my mind, least interesting) text, TAZ (aka temporary autonomous zone).

also, we’re in the stretch for BASTARD. invite people to do workshops, especially on science fiction and/or utopian visions. (remember: interesting disagreements are the best kind.)

 

reading for 2/3/15

first reading(s) for our month on Kobane (both of these are probably out of date in information, but not in  analysis):

first week:   the experiment of kurdistan

second week:   the seemingly quixotic journey (tom nomad)

reading for 11.25.14

we plan on doing a month of readings by samuel r. delaney, starting out with rhetoric of sex, discourse of desire

delaney is relevant to anarchists in the way that good science fiction authors are meaningful to us, and delaney in particular is a very smart, gender-bending, philosophically minded author, who manages to tie together many threads in both fiction and non fiction writings. (so one of the things to look at here is how he writes… and ties personal anecdote into more general topics.)

on accelerationism (?!?) etc for 11/18

reading for 10.21

three pieces from the new black seed (#2): the two anthropology pieces (by aragorn! and kevin tucker, respectively) and the white nationalism piece.
the premise is that there is a thread (or more) linking these three essays.
find the thread!
and this is sort of still on the topic of how we talk to people who disagree with us; the various formats at our disposal and how those formats are best used.

reading for 10/14

sorry this is so late!

we are taking the concept and practice of talking to people we don’t agree with, in particular leftists.

how to do it, why to do it, and when to do it.  and what the various formats that we operate within (ie communicating online, etc) allow for and discourage.

these are in chronological order, and refer to each other, so best to read them this way.
