The Anarchist Library at City College of San Francisco is offering
four free courses in the fall. All courses are on the topic of, or relating
to, anarchism, both in practice and theory. All courses are free and
open to the public. No enrollment at CCSF is necessary. All classes
will be held in the Upper Level Student Union room 208, main campus
50 Phelan Ave. Classroom subject to change later in semester.
The courses are as follows:
PATTERNS IN ANARCHIST HISTORY
taught by Barry Pateman Ph.D. ( Emma Goldman Papers, Kate Sharpley Library)
Is there anything to learn from past experiences and actions of
anarchists that can inform today's activties. We'll have a look at
various examples of anarchist activity from history and see if there is
anything to learn from them.

Class starts Sep. 9th ( class meets 4x's Sep. 9th, Oct. 14th, 28th,
Nov.18th) 7:00 - 9:00 PM

INTRODUCTION TO ANARCHIST ORGANIZATIONS
Facilitated discussion with members of AK Press and Emma
Goldman Papers.

This class will take a look at the ways anarchists have organized in
the past and present. We will take a critical look at our successes and
failures and see what we can learn from both.
Class meets bi-weekly.
First class sep. 7th Last class Dec 14th 7:00 -9:00 PM

ANARCHISM PRACTICE AND THEORY

A student directed class that will explore anarchism both in its
historical and current day application within society as well as the
underlying theory behind its practice.
Class every Thu.
Starts Sep.2nd 4:00 - 5:30

ANARCHIST GUEST SPEAKER CLASS

Thu. 7:00 - 9:00

Speakers for September

Sep. 9th- BARRY PATEMAN - PATTERNS IN ANARCHIST
HISTORY ( ongoing lecture )

Sep. 16th- RAMSEY KANAAN - WHEN FUCKING THE SYSTEM
ISN'T ENOUGH
This talk will focus on Ramsey's experiences as an anarchist
organizer in Scotland with the Edinburg anarchist org., Comm-
unity Resistance. It will look at the various activities, both
propaganda and more importantly activism, that the Community
Resistance group was involved in- culminating in thier five
year anti-poll tax organization campaign- and the conclusions
that can be drawn in terms of anarchist organizations, anarch-
ist groups, and vanguards.

Sep. 23rd- LAWRENCE JARACH - POST-LEFT ANARCHISM
" Those of us who are interested in promoting radical social
change in general and anarchist in particular, need to emulate
and improve upon successful(however temporary) revolutionary
projects for liberation, rather than congratulating ourselves
for being the heirs of Bakunin (et al). We can do this best if
we free ourselves from the historical baggage and the
ideological and strategic constraints of all varieties of
leftism."

Sep. 30th- NOAM CHOMSKY - REFLECTIONS ON
ANARCHISM
Premier screening of a video interview conducted by Barry
Pateman at Noam's house earlier this year.

-Anarchist Class Update-

The Anarchist Library has scheduled a day for one of the Anarchist
Practice and Theory classes. It will be held every Thu., 4:00 - 5:30,
starting Aug. 26th. No classroom has been reserved yet so location is
still in the works. If this day and time works for you then please respond
to this e-mail so that we can put you on the sign-up list and keep you
informed about class location and other pertinent class info. As we are
trying to limit the class size to 10 people it is therefore important to
sign up early. If the time doesn't work and you would still like to take
the class, then please let us know what days and times are good for you so
that we can set up a second Practice/Theory Class, perhaps in the
evening.

The text book for the Practice and Theory Class is on the way to the
printing press and should be available before class begins. It is our hope
to get the text books out early so that folks can start studying asap.

As for our Anarchist Guest Speaker Class which will be held on Thu.
evenings, we need some help. We still have openings for certain nights
that need to be filled. If you have any suggestions or know any anarchist
folks that live in the Bay area that would be able to put on a
presentation for at least 45 min.; panels included; on the topic of
anarchism in the context of our lives, movements, current social
conditions, history and any sort of challenges to existing conceptual
tools of anarchist thought that need to rethought; than please let us
know. It should be stated that we are trying to stay away from how-to
workshops and lifestyle anarchism. Please send any and all proposals
to sea@anarchistlibrary.org. Guest speakers will recieve an honorarium
of $100.
