Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library

All the Feels: The Politics of Emotion and Social Change.
   From liberal snowflakes, to proto-fascist tyrants melting down like toddlers, to fabulous femmes with all the feels, are we witnessing the undoing of the supremacy of Cartesian reason and its suppression and derision of emotion?  Or, are we rather entering an era of new emotional scrutiny and social control?  Can honoring emotions, and the material bodies in which they are born support us to connect, achieve deeper solidarity and build movements that really move, or will increased emotionality simply be more terrain to be plundered for coercion? 
   Using Marxist theories of alienation, commodity fetishization and reification as a points of departure and integrating the work of contemporary Marxists, critical theorists and neuroscientists – with a critical lens to the both the liberatory and oppressive or reifying potential of science – this talk will address these questions and core themes. Speaker will be Mordecai Cohen Ettinger, Founder, Health Justice Commons.
