On May 7, we’re reading the first chapter from Nancy Fraser and Rahel Jaeggi’s book “Capitalism: A Conversation”, entitled “Conceptualizing Capitalism”.
On April 23rd, we will be discussing the Insurrectional Anarchism reader that recently came out. We encourage everyone to read the pieces “Insurrectionary Organization” by Jean Weir and “The Anarchist Ethic in the Age of the Anti-Globalization Movement” by Killing King Abacus, and whichever other pieces speak to their interests. The hope is to clarify the basic contours of the IA current for ourselves, as both a revolutionary strategy and a set of theoretical assumptions about how social movements and revolutionary struggles expand and grow.
We will meet at 730pm, at 2412 W. 24th Place.
On April 16th, Building the Commune’s spring series kicks off with a reportback from the ongoing revolt in Haiti. Reading for this week (selected by the presenter) is the short article, “Haiti’s Unfinished Revolution”
