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.)
Fad or Functional? Anarchist or quite the opposite? This week we will discuss Accelerationism
Benjamin Noys (intro to malign velocities: accelerationism and capitalism)
At 7pm, we will potluck. Bring food!
Then, at 8pm we will watch Part 2 of the Mayfair Set.
Lastly, at 9pm, if we can keep our food down, we will discuss the horror (ahem…Halloween!!) and beauty that is Bataille (the readings are from last week, which got “cancelled” ).
