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
learn.

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
Movement

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
the
book trade and the anarchist movement as both a publisher
and
distributor. Questions that will be addressed include:
What is the
structure of AK Press and how does it reflect anarchist
commitments?
what is the role of an anarchist propagandist within
capitalism?
What problems/contradictions does that entail? How does AK
Press
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
Jamming"
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
Research

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,
1938.
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
white-supremacist-capitalist
-patriarchy.
Shawn McDougal, Building a culture of critical, courageous,
compassionate engagement across
boundaries

12:00-1:00 Lunch Break

1:00-2:15 Avery Auditorium: Marcus Page on "A Peace of Anarchy, Ammon
Hennacy" Film and discussion. Released last year: "A Peace of the
Anarchy," is a quick trip through 20th Century American radical
history, with a special focus on Ammon Hennacy. The film features
Starhawk, Carlos Cortez, Dorothy Day, David Dellinger, Kathy Kelly and
Karl Meyer."

Autonomy
