This talk will survey anarchism's aspirations from its European beginnings during the Industrial Revolution to its reemergence as a postwar and especially contemporary phenomenon in order to illuminate its relevancy (or not) for a globalizing world.

Anarchism and Its Aspirations

Anarchism, in advocating a free and diverse society, is perhaps the only tradition that has consistently rooted out domination in its many forms, while also attempting to theorize and practice utopian alternatives. It has also been a crucial catalyst for what has become a global movement today, potentially offering an anti-authoritarian alternative to the hegemony of representative democracy and Western capitalism. This talk will survey anarchism's aspirations from its European beginnings during the Industrial Revolution to its reemergence as a postwar and especially contemporary phenomenon in order to illuminate its relevancy (or not) for a globalizing world.


Confirmed Panelists so are Aragorn!, Daniel Cull (AF-IFA) and Wayne Price (Open City Collective, NEFAC). Aragorn! co-produces Anarchy magazine, 8 Days of Anarchy and the BASTARD anarchist conference. He writes on nihilism, race and mythology, and provides tech services to radical projects. He will be speaking from an anarchist perspective beyond the revolutionary tradition. Wayne Price is a longtime activist and writer. He is a member of the Northeastern Federation of Anarchist-Communists (NEFAC) and was previously a member of the Love and Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation. He writes a monthly essay for Anarkismo and has been active in the politics of the teachers' union oppositions.
