(en) US, Claremont, Call For Papers and Participants - International Anarchist Academics and Activists Conference

Date Sun, 25 Dec 2005 11:10:46 +0200

April 13-15, 2006 -- Pitzer College -- Claremont, CA USA
Next April, anarchist academics and activists will gather for three days of
culture jamming, music, film, art, panel presentations, discussions, lectures,
and demonstrations. Whether you are an anarchist or just curious about anarchism,
all are welcome to participate. The purpose of the conference is to strengthen
connections among anarchists on the streets and in the academy, to sharpen the
anarchist critique of the present, to deepen our understanding of the origins
and history of anarchism, to stimulate further activism, and to present the
anarchist vision to a wider audience. The conference will take place on the
campus of Pitzer College, which is one of the five undergraduate institutions
collectively known as the Claremont Colleges, and the host of Anarchy Archives
http://anarchyarchives.org .

The conference will begin with some culture jamming
of our own. Students at Pitzer have begun organizing a
"Whirl" down the aisles of a local marketing behemoth where
we will form a conga line with empty shopping carts and
raise awareness about the high cost of low prices. Then,
for the next three days there will be continuous live music,
films, presentations and discussions. The topics will be as
wide ranging and diverse as the anarchist movement itself.
If you would like to present a formal paper, make an
informal presentation about activist projects, join a panel
discussion, or simply soak up all the conference has to
offer, please contact Dana Ward dward-A-pitzer.edu as soon
as possible. There is no formal deadline or format for
proposals, but the earlier you respond, the easier it will
be to schedule presentations. If all you want to do is
attend the conference, it would greatly facilitate planning
if you would also contact Dana Ward dward-A-pitzer.edu
soon. Space will also be made available for book sales and
for activist groups to distribute literature and
information about their activities.

Keynote speakers include: Alan Antliff, John Clark,
Josh Connole, and Sharon Presley. Marianne Enckell of CIRA
will organize the film festival, and Wolf Edwards will be
the music master, including a performance of an original
composition produced for this conference.
The website with full details about the conference
will go online February 1, 2006
