A benefit for the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair.
In collaboration with the Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS)
THE BOOK: GRAMSCI IS DEAD. Anarchist Currents in the Newest Social Movements
GRAMSCI'S concept of hegemony casts a long shadow over radical political
theory. Yet how far has this theory got us? Is it still central to
feminism, anti-capitalism, anti-racism, anarchism, and other radical
social movements today? Richard Day shows how most contemporary movements
attempt to develop new forms of self-organization that can run parallel-or
as alternatives-to existing forms. They follow a logic of affinity rather
than hegemony.


** Richard Day, author of GRAMSCI is DEAD. Richard is Assistant Professor
of Sociology at Queen's University, Kingston. He is active in food,
housing, and financial co-ops, in the movement against neo-liberalism, and
in defending the university as a public, accessible space for critical
thought and social analysis.

** Jean-Marc Piotte, Professor of Political Science and Philosophy at the
University of Quebec, Montréal (UQAM). Cofounder of the political and
cultural magazine “Parti Pris” in 1963, Jean-Marc is also the author of
“Gramsci’s Political Thought”.

** Anti-authoritarian activists involved in grassroots struggles in the
Montreal area

** A presentation on the Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS): its
mission, grant program for radical writers and Perspectives
on Anarchist Theory.
