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 February 24th 2015

The month of January – Anti-Blackness

This month we are going to read and discuss the afro-pessimism/anti-blackness set of ideas… along with some other things but hopefully we will be keeping things topical to a anti-blackness vs whiteness/anti-racist theme.

 

Week 1 (January 6th): Frank Wilderson interview “we’re trying to destroy the world”. also… POTLUCK! @ 7pm
Week 2: the overview (first 40 pages) in Charles W Mills – The Racial Contract
Week 3: Open to thoughts but perhaps the article from Black Seed 2?
here is the complete reading of the undying appeal of white nationalism for week 3.
Week 4: What are you really? Mills_CharlesW – Whatareyoureally

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.)
