Join us for a talk on Erica Lagalisse’s new book, Occult Features of Anarchism: With Attention to the Conspiracy of Kings and the Conspiracy of the Peoples. Lagalisse sets straight the history of the Left, illustrating the actual relationship between modern revolutionism, occult philosophy, and the clandestine fraternity: Questions of class respectability may lead Leftists to ignore “conspiracy theory”, yet in doing so neo-fascist theories of history gain ground. With the challenge of coalition politics in mind, Lagalisse's latest work also serves to challenge modern Western anarchist constructions of “atheism”, as well as illustrates how the development of Leftist practice within clandestine masculine “public” spheres continues to inform 21st century anarchist understandings of the ‘political’, in which men’s oppression by the state becomes the prototype for power in general.
