As we enter the 21st century, the political landscape has shifted
dramatically. Since the end of the Cold War and the beginning of the
open-ended War on Terror, the dominant ideologies, categories, antagonists,
analyses of power and the modes in which it is exercised have changed.
Accordingly, the theories and praxes of resistance are changing as well.
Among these, anarchism has re-emerged in the last several years as a
prominent element within radical social movements in North America and
Europe, particularly among those which aspire to act in solidarity with
those movements in Asia, Africa and Latin America that are on the
offensive against neoliberalism and U.S. imperialism.

Many of these draw upon compatible traditions of local
autonomy, direct democracy, and resistance to market economies
and colonizing institutions. Meanwhile in the global north, the
organizing practices and techniques of resistance associated with
anarchism have spread widely among activists working for social and
economic justice, including those who do not espouse an anarchist

On May 7th the University of California, Santa Cruz Anarchist
Cluster and Center for Cultural Studies will host a one-day
conference and conversation exploring and contextualizing
contemporary anarchism. Organizing questions include: How can
we think adequately about anarchism’s place in current social
justice movements? What resources does anarchism present us for
addressing the current moment? What is it about this current
conjuncture that resonates with anarchism? How might anarchism
be a part of re-politicizing the academic left? Topics discussed will
include: Lessons of the IWW, Chinese Anarchism, Anarchism and
the Academy, Subjectivities of Resistance, Changing the World
Without Taking Power, Popular Anarchism and Anarchism and the
Prison Industrial Complex. The conference will include two panels
with ample time for discussion, and an extended lunch/break-out
period. Conference speakers include Iain Boal, Arif Dirlik, Carwil
James, John Holloway, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Barry Pateman,
Roger White, and Eddie Yuen. The open form of the conference will
facilitate a roundtable atmosphere for all to participate actively.
