we’ve had another suggestion from the famous disappearing man, this time for an ursula le guin story, the child and the shadow.
it’s available to read for free through Evil Google. 🙁
the week after that (3.29, yay for math), we’ll be reading something from Endnotes. stay tuned…
a piece on afro-pessimism that seems to adhere more closely to wilderson’s ideas that wilderson himself did in talking to folks (in the interview that was our last encounter with him in the study group).
agamben’s the coming community…
we will be ending our month of readings of the sits by watching an hour of the debord film, can dialectics break bricks, an example of the kind of situation that the sits thought might have a chance of giving people room to think differently.
there will probably be more discussion after the film about art, other kinds of situations and interventions, perhaps some about the non-french situationists, and so on.
this week’s reading is brought to us by theanarchistlibrary.org, the best archive evar!
two readings on why more people don’t resist (at least not in ways we commonly understand as resisting).
one is by saul newman
and the other is by frere dupont (this is in species being, for those of you who have that book).
the soul of man under socialism, by wilde.
i hear tell squee and paul z will be leading the conversation… 😉
through chapter 1 of anti-oedipus (link is in last week’s post).
we’re starting one of our most ambitious readings ever, namely the influential anti-oedipus, by deleuze and guattari.
full text is here.
we will start with the introduction and first chapter (so linear!), so through page 8 (the chapters are short).
and we hope to have a few of the interesting people who have been intrigued and influenced by this text come and talk to us about it, over the course of reading the book. so, stay tuned.
