Event Type Speaker
Organizer/Author
Anarchism has changed profoundly over the course of the twentieth century, but the movement's recent history has not been well documented. In this talk, followed by a discussion, Andy Cornell will address the ways that anarchist theory, strategy, and art evolved from the outbreak of World War I to the end of the Vietnam War. Sharing dozens of archival photographs, letters, periodicals, and newspaper clippings, he'll explore anarchist responses to the Great Depression and New Deal; the rise of anarcho-pacifism, consensus, and prefigurative politics in the 1940s; and anarchist contributions to the black freedom movement, beat generation, and New Left.

Andy is the author of Oppose and Propose! Lessons from Movement for a New Society (IAS/AK Press, 2011) and "For a World without Oppressors": U.S. Anarchism from the Palmer Raids to the Sixties (Phd diss., 2011). He works as an educator and labor organizer in New York City.
