The full schedule of the International Anarchist Academics and

Activists Conference to be held on the Pitzer Campus beginning this

Thursday at 1:15 is pasted below. Highlights include talks in Avery

Auditorium by John Clark on Utopian Dreams and Nightmares this Thursday

at 1:15; Allan Antliff on Ananda Coomaraswamy, an Indian anarchist this

Friday at 9:00; Sharon Presley on Voltairine de Cleyre's Legacy this

Friday at 1:30; Cindy Milstein on New Anarchism this Saturday at 9:00;

and at 2:30 Saturday, although perhaps not a "highlight", I will be

speaking on "Recuperated" Factories in Argentina. There is much else

scheduled including book exhibits and sales in McConnell living room,

films every night, a demonstration Thursday evening, and much more. If

you ever wondered what anarchism is about, this is your chance to


Thursday, April 13

1:15-2:15 Avery Auditorium: John Clark: "Utopian Dreams and Nightmares"

Utopian visions can be either a mode of liberation, creative

imagination, and the striving toward a new reality, or a mode of

escapism, reactivity, self-indulgence and denial of reality. The focus

of the talk will be on the relation between utopianism and

"topianism"--the rootedness in, appreciation of, and deep exploration

of realities (and surrealities) of place, locality and region.

2:30-4:30 Session A, Avery Auditorium: Anarchist Theory

Alex Prichard on Proudhon

Mitch Verter on Ricardo Flores Magon and Magonismo today

2:35-4:30 Session B, Fletcher 106 (Building 4): Politics in the


Travis Tomchuk on "Agitators of Alien Birth: Representations of

Anarchists in

Early Twentieth Century Canadian Print Media"

In this presentation I will argue that the portrayal of

anarchists as violent

foreigners was integral to the creation of political

citizenship in Canada. Anarchists

who found themselves on the margins of Canadian society

helped to shape the centre by

illuminating the limits of the status quo.

Erik Andersen on "Authority and Leadership"

The fundamental difference between authority and

leadership hinges on the means

or the reason by which a person comes into this

coordinating position. Authority

is a privilege of command accorded to a person or group

based on some preexisting

condition. On the other hand, leadership is a

responsibility placed upon a person or

group that shares the goals and the project of all involved.

5:00-6:00 WhirlMart demonstration: gather in Avery Auditorium

8:00-10:00 Film: Emma Goldman, an Exceedingly Dangerous Woman, Mel

Bucklin, 2003.

Broad Performance Space (Building 1)

Friday, April 14

9:00-10:00 Avery Auditorium: Alan Antliff on Porous Anarchy

Allan Antliff will discuss the anarchism of the early 20th century

anti-colonial activist Ananda Coomaraswamy, who combined calls for an

anti-industrial, anti-colonial revolution in India with a parallel

revolution in the industrial West.

10:00-12:00 Session A, Avery Auditorium: Spreading the Word

Chuck Munson on Infoshops

AK Press on Publishing Anarchist Works

AK Press collective members present their relationship to


book trade and the anarchist movement as both a publisher


distributor. Questions that will be addressed include:

What is the

structure of AK Press and how does it reflect anarchist


what is the role of an anarchist propagandist within


What problems/contradictions does that entail? How does AK


respond to recent changes in the book industry? What is the

importance of publishing (both self- and with ak press)?

How does

one go about doing that?

Tommy Bigfinger and Ramie Becker on "The Efficacy of Culture


Dana Ward and John Clark on publishing collective proposal.

10:00-12:00 Session B, Founders Room, 2nd floor of McConnell: Theory

and Practice

Matt Lucas on Nietzche

Richard Day on Gramsci

Taylor Smith on John Cage

12:00-1:15 Lunch Break

1:30-2:30 Avery Auditorium: Sharon Presley: Voltairine de Cleyre's

Legacy: Her Relevance for Today"

Many of the issues that Voltairine de Cleyre struggled with are still

being debated today. Her thought-provoking challenges to the

conventional thinking of her day are no less radical now as then. Her

insights into political, social, religious, and feminist controversies

are still fresh and relevant, and remain unconventional and challenging

for both anarchists and nonanarchists alike.

2:45-5:00 Session A, Avery Auditorium: Organizing

Ben Shepard on Play

Annie Ross on "War is the Expletive": acts of war, nuclearism,

gmo seeds, herbicides,

pesticides, pollution, indifference to needs, and

colonization as manufactured goods

of the modern age.

Saab Lofton, "Is the pen TRULY mightier than the sword (or the

gun, bomb, etc.)?"

Sarah Coffey on "Legal work in movement building and organizing."

How can we make the legal system and the state respond to us

instead of the other

way around, how can we proactively insert ourselves in the

legal process to keep

people out of jail instead of supporting people once they're

in, and how do we keep

movements from shifting to primarily jail support once

organizers are targeted by the state?

2:45-5:00 Session B Founders Room, 2nd floor of McConnell: Anarchist


Stevphen Shukaitas on Militant Research

Louis F. Gaudet on Anarchists in Academia

Bill Zoda on Anarchism in academia

8:00-10:00 Films: Fury over Spain, Louis Frank, Adrien Porchet, Spain,


Land and Freedom, Tierra y libertad, Ken Loach, UK 1995.

Broad Performance Space (Building 1)

Saturday, April 15

9:00-10:00 Avery Auditorium: Cindy Milstein: New Anarchism

Over the past few years, anarchism has emerged as one of the most

compelling currents within today's anti-capitalist milieu. With its

emphasis on participation and prefigurative politics, anarchism has

contributed to diverse experiments in horizontal organization as well

as social power, alongside or in solidarity with a variety of

anti-authoritarian movements worldwide. It has also brought a

refreshing wave of utopian thinking to a tired Left. And perhaps for

the first time in its own history, anarchism is all that much more

relevant and even workable in this era, variously labeled the network

society, the information age, or simply globalization. This talk will

explore the outlines of what's been called "the new anarchism,"

including whether it's new at all, against the backdrop of the present

moment, in an attempt to capture some of the vibrancy and even

innovations of " and tensions within " contemporary anarchism.

10:15-12:00 Avery Auditorium: Race, Gender, Class and the Environment

Lynn Owens, New Orleans after Katrina

Anjali Nath, on "Anarchism: A Multicultural Perspective"

Mathew Romain, on "Intentional Communities: Grassroots

Infrastructure Against Capitalist

Hegemony." This presentation will attempt to illuminate the

possibilities of co-operative

and collective living to create sustainable regional

communities in facilitating efforts to

confront and defeat global corporate rule in the context of

Starhawk, Carlos Cortez, Dorothy Day, David Dellinger, Kathy Kelly and

Karl Meyer."
