Anarchism Now Conference (5/7)

On May 7th the UCSC Anarchist Research Cluster and the Center for Cultural Studies will host a one-day conference and conversation exploring and contextualizing contemporary anarchism.

Organizing questions include: How can we think adequately about anarchism’s place in current social justice movements? What resources does anarchism present us for addressing the current moment? What is it about this current conjuncture that resonates with anarchism? How might anarchism be a part of re-politicizing the academic left?

The conference will include two panels with ample time for discussion, and an extended lunch discussion. Conference speakers include Iain Boal, Arif Dirlik, Carwil James, John Holloway, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Barry Pateman, Roger White, and Eddie Yuen.

The open form of the conference will facilitate a roundtable atmosphere for all to participate actively.
