On Tuesday, January 22th, we will be looking at Silvia Federici’s 2004 Caliban and the Witch – Women, the Body, and Primitive Accumulation. A full-book PDF is here. We will be focusing on Chapter 1 (“All the World Needs a Jolt”) and Chapter 2 (“The Accumulation of Labor and the Degradation of Women”).
A video interview with Federici exploring the main claims of the book the context from which it emerged is here, and transcribed into a printable zine here.
As usual, we will meet at Breakaway Social Center, which is at 2412 W 24th Place, across the street from Working Bikes. (Don’t trust google maps, it will steer you wrong).
