We’re back at it again with a series of seminars The Isms of March as part of our Thinking Critically about Society series. We’ll be joined by CSU Monterey Bay professors, local poets, and critically thinkers just like you to help tackle some of the different ideologies and theories that we’ve been hearing about.

Friday 9 March – 7pm: What is Anarchism?
Facilitated by Michael Frederiksen

What do people mean when they say “Anarchism”? Between the international Occupy movement, and questions surrounding capitalism, Anarchism has been a topic that has been much in the media of 2017. This seminar will introduce you to the philosophies of Anarchism through key readings, and then use these philosophies to discuss current events.

Suggested reading for the session:
1.) Howard Zinn – “Anarchism”.
2.) Emma Goldman – “Anarchism: what it really stands for”.
3.) Noam Chomsky – “On Anarchism”.
4.) Encyclopedia Brtiannica, 1905 – “Anarchism”.
5.) L. Susan Brown – “Does Work Really Work?”, Kick it Over, #35.
