Week 2 (4/21) – Through the end
This evening we are reading an unpublished article by Uri Gordon that was presented at the 2015 NAASN conference. One of the study group was so excited by the piece that they stomped and cried until we begged Uri for the text. He dutifully responded.
We will be reading “Prefigurative Politics and Anarchism” by Uri Gordon which will be available in hard copy on Tuesday.
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
We are starting a three week reading (with speaker?) of Murray Bookchin’s The Spanish Anarchists
Read through page 32 (through Chapter 1).
what makes the spanish civil war history relevant to us today?
what makes it irrelevant?
given their situation, what would we do differently?
what would we do the same?
Fad or Functional? Anarchist or quite the opposite? This week we will discuss Accelerationism
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” ).
