to continue our month of nihilist queer readings, here is the ending of the new book Queer Ultraviolence.
make tote destroy and all that…
so we screwed up and didn’t put the reading for this week (which is the editorial from the new journal Lawless), although luckily some of us have the hand out, and some have the journal, so tonight should still be saved.
this reading starts out a month of queer nihilist readings. the reading for 6/5 is the conclusion of the new book Queer Ultraviolene.
also – next week is potluck. bring food and come at 7. yum.
We will be reading The Right’s Tough by Robert J. Sawyer. Check back in this space as there was suppose to be a second reading but it has yet to be emailed to us.
the second reading is here, courtesy of j.j. (this is a short story by stanislaw lem, a polish science fiction author popular in russia).
Trurl’s Electronic Bard
We will be reading Lewis Call’s essay entitled Structures of Desire: Postanarchist Kink in the Speculative Fiction of Octavia Butler and Samuel Delany.
Is this month’s theme kink, science fiction, or something else? I thought we were done with Postanarchy already. Bring suggested readings and we will figure it out.
Come at 7pm for the potluck. vegan, nut-free, hippy crap preferred.
We will be reading Accursed Anarchism: Five Post-Anarchist Meditations on Bataille.
On the 24th we will be reading Steps Toward a Poststructuralist Anarchism by Todd May from his book The Political Philosophy of Poststructuralist Anarchism
We will be reading excerpts from Theodor Adorno’s Minima Moralia available here: http://www.mediafire.com/?3tcayqap8a9rx8d
We will be discussing the first chapter of Dialectic of Enlightenment by Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno. The chapter is titled The Concept of Enlightenment. There are two links for the chapter as there are two translations (you only need to read one of them).
The improved 2002 Edmund Jephcott translation is a rougher scan and may not work for all printers. It is available here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sx2ua7z1bre1y3v
The 1972 John Cumming translation is a better scan and it is available here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ooj4p3i7g047uzw
