MEMORY AND SOLIDARITY:
An Evening with Sean Burns and Andrej Grubacic

Sean Burns and Andrej Grubacic are both organizers, teachers, and historians of the Left. Recently they have each completed works on two dynamic elders of US radicalism: Archie Green and Staughton Lynd. At this event Burns and Grubacic will discuss why they entered into these projects, including questions of cross generational activist dialogue, memory and social struggle, Marxism and anarchism, cultural politics, and more. Additionally, discussion will focus how they have developed their historical work through oral and archival history, marking continuity as well as generational and philosophical tensions between collaborators. The evening will include a brand new short film on Archie Green, "Learning to Bend Steel" by Alex Johnston.

Sean Burns lectures on U.S. social movement history at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He recently completed his dissertation, Vernacular Strut: The Intellectual and Activist Legacy of Archie Green, in the History of Consciousness Department (UC Santa Cruz) and is working on a full-length biography of Green.

Andrej Grubacic is a historian and dissident scholar from post-Yugoslavia. In 2008, he and Staughton Lynd published Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism, and Radical History. Grubacic is assistant professor of sociology at the University of San Francisco.
