The Direct Action Monterey Network and the Monterey Community Education Project work together to organize the Thinking Critically about Society (TCAS) seminars. This spring’s seminars are facilitated by a collection of community organizors, professors, and students who live and work on the peninsula, covering the topics of Anarchism, Polyamory, Social Perceptions of Disability, and Reproductive Justice.

Polyamory, or Ethical Nonmonogamy
Friday 14 April 2017, 7pm
Facilitated by Stephanie Spoto

“Polyamory (from Greek πολύ [poly], meaning ‘many’ or ‘several’, and Latin amor, ‘love’) is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.” This discussion will explore jealousy, sexuality, and love under capitalism.

Readings (for free at link below):

Infinite Relationships – Zine
“For Lovers and Fighters” by Dean Spade
Ethical Sluts by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy

Full series:
-What is Anarchism? 7 April 7pm
-Polyamory, or Ethical Nonmonogamy 14 April 7pm
-Social Perceptions of Disability 21 April 7pm
-Reproductive Justice 28 April 7pm

These series of seminar sessions have been put together to encourage the exchange of ideas, experiences, and knowledge surrounding a particular topic or theme. We want to create a place where people can meet with other people from Monterey Bay communities to talk about current events and discuss new philosophies and ways of thinking critically about society. Though these seminars have been designed for non-students, and for those of us who have had little or no college experience, everyone is invited to participate. We believe that everyone can have something to offer to the seminars as we move through current debates in politics and different political and social theories.
