Contemporary Anarchist Studies Book Launch

Time September 29 · 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Location Mondragon Bookstore & Coffee House
91 Albert St
Winnipeg, MB
Created By Viva Mondragon
More Info Join us for an evening with author & activist Randall Amster.
The discussion will explore the implications for nonviolent change presented in the recent volume of collected essays, Contemporary Anarchist Studies, which “seeks to bridge the gap between anarchy in the streets and anarchism in the academy.” Focusing on theory, pedagogy, methodologies, praxis, and the future, this interdisciplinary work highlights connections between anarchism and other perspectives such as feminism, queer theory, critical race theory, peace studies, post-modernism and post-structuralism, animal liberation, and environmental justice. The book brings together a wide variety of anarchist voices while stressing anarchism’s tradition of innovation and dissent. This interactive session will discuss the process, substance, and utility of the book – the first academic anthology of anarchism meant for a wide readership to be released in decades – and will apply shared understandings of anarchism to current issues ranging from homelessness and climate change to globalization and social movements.
