Friday 28 October 2016, 7pm: Old Capitol Books and the Direct Action Monterey Network are teaming up again for the twenty-first installment of the Theory and Philosophy Reading Group. This month, we’ll be reading sections from Poor People’s Movements by Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward. Come join local thinkers, activists, philosophers, and readers for a discussion about the intersections between theory, philosophy, and social movements.

“A provocative book that should be read by both students and makers of social history.”–Michael Harrington, The New York Times Book Review

This series of Theory & Philosophy Reading Group sessions is building off the foundational knowledge explored as part of last summer’s Thinking Critically about Society seminar series; in particular, we’ll be exploring themes introduced in the seminar on Marxist-Feminism last August. Our last Theory & Philosophy Reading Group looked at the Marxist theoretical work of Teresa Amott and Julie Matthaei, and this month we’ll continue in that theme with an exploration of Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward’s work Poor People’s Movement.
