during the next month or so that go beyond their usual fare.

with Luca Casarini and Michael Hardt
Tuesdays, April 15 - 7:30 pm, 3 session class begins
The Scholarly Road Not Yet Taken: A Preliminary Postmodernist Anarchist
Analysis of the Black Panther Party
Ashanti Alston

What would an analysis of the BPP look like through the lens of
postmodernism and anarchism? What would be its highlights? Marxism as
Metanarrative? Racialized Commodification? Imperialism versus
Neo-liberalism? Hegemony? Hierarchy? In this 3-session class, Ashanti
Alston intends to bring out why he feels a postmodernist and anarchist
analysis and style can help bring new understandings to age-old, stubborn
movement problems. Alston will focus on the BPP and the strengths and
limitations of the movements of that period. What about our current
period is so different from any other period in Babylon? If power belongs
to the people in the struggle for self-determination and revolution, then
what helps to preserve the integrity of this?

Ashanti Alston is a former Black Panther/BLA prisoner. Member of Estacion
Libre, Critical Resistance, Institute for Anarchist Studies

Sliding Scale: $25/$35
