September 4th – Next Anarchist Study Group!

August 29, 2011 § 2 Comments

We are returning from our semi-hiatus to read David Graeber’s Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology.  We can talk about the first 45 pages or so for the next meeting, then read the rest for the Sunday after that.  With the essay, anthropologist David Graeber attempts to outline areas of research that intellectuals might explore in creating a body of anarchist social theory.

Everywhere anarchism is on the upswing as a political philosophy—everywhere, that is, except the academy. Anarchists repeatedly appeal to anthropologists for ideas about how society might be reorganized on a more egalitarian, less alienating basis. Anthropologists, terrified of being accused of romanticism, respond with silence . . . . But what if they didn’t?

Treasure City, Sundays at 7pm, be there!

    Will you still be reading it in late September? I was planning on being down in Austin then.

    Holy crap, well maybe we should! We were only planning on talking about it for the next two Sundays (the 4th and 11th) but you should totally come out and see us when you get in town! Let me talk to some other people and see what they think.
