Summer Class Series on the History of Radical Politics, Part II: Anarchism

+ Attending

Join Sasha K on Sunday, July 27 from 2-4PM for an introduction to classical anarchism. We will discuss the historical context of the rise of the anarchist movement from the 1840s through WWI, focusing on its social context and global spread. As the first non-Party transnational social movement, Anarchism exerted great influence over the development of oppositional practices and anti-capitalist imagination in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. What accounts for its emergence, rise, and global spread? What were its main ideas and practices? The classical anarchist movement was very diverse, and this introduction will necessarily leave much out. Yet viewing classical anarchism in historical context will help us to think about both its relevance to the present and the sharp differences between the period of classical anarchism and the present.

The session will include both presentation by Sasha and discussion. Readings TBA.
