Monday, November 8:
Beer and Revolution: Tom Goyens will be discussing the impact
of German Anarchist immigrants to New York City from 1880 to
1914. Much of the information is from a book he wrote which is
being published by the University of Illinois Press.
Monroe Hall, Room 104. 7:00 pm

Friday, November 12:
Islam, the Secular Left, and Building a Polycentric World: Junaid
Ahmad will discuss issues related to Islam and Muslims post
9/11, how the secular left and progressives need to develop an
engaged, yet critical, solidarity with Muslims (but of course not
only with Muslims), and the necessary interface between
progressive cultural expressions from diverse global communities
needed to build a polycentric and egalitarian world. Junaid Ahmad
identifies as a Muslim Anarcho-syndicalist, and part of the
Progressive Muslim Network.
Monroe Hall, Room 302. 2:00 pm

Consensus and Anarchist Community: One of the foundations of
Anarchism are collective and inclusive decision making. Mark
Lance will discuss consensus theory and consensus practice,
providing the audience with a clear introduction to anarchist
theory, as well as something new for seasoned anarchists to chew
on. Mark Lance is a Philosophy professor at Georgetown
Monroe Hall, Room 102. 3:30 pm

Sunday, November 14:
Intersexuality, Challenging the Gender Binary: This presentation
gives a brief overview of some current theories about gender and
sex in an effort to explain intersex, bodies which are not clearly
male or female. A history of hermaprhoditic images, as well as a
few case examples of intersex people will hopefully shed light on
the complexity and significance of intersex in relationship to sex
and gender studies. Nathan Long is an English professor, queer
theory activist, and member of the board of the Richmond Queer
Space Project.
Monroe Hall, room 202. 5:00 pm

Tuesday, November 16:
Film: Emma Goldman Documentary & Discussion: Emma
Goldman (1869-1940) stands as a major figure in the history of
American radicalism and feminism. An influential and
well-known anarchist of her day, Goldman was an early advocate
of free speech, birth control, women’s equality and
independence, and union organization. Her criticism of mandatory
conscription of young men into the military during World War I
led to a two-year imprisonment, followed by her deportation in
1919. For the rest of her life until her death in 1940, she continued
to participate in the social and political movements of her age,
from the Russian Revolution to the Spanish Civil War.
Monroe Hall, room 102. 6:00 pm

Friday, November 19:
Participatory Economics: Participatory economics is the
economics of equitable cooperation as opposed to the economics
of competition and greed. Designed to promote equity,
self-management, and solidarity, participatory economics seeks to
achieve this without sacrificing economic efficiency, but
promoting a diversity of economic life styles. Robin Hahnel is the
coauthor of the theories of participatory economics and an
economics professor at American University. *Introductory essays
are available at the Radical Library in the lobby of Monroe Hall. *
Monroe Hall, room 107. 1:00 pm
