The 'New Anarchism': A Talk by Cindy Milstein

Jack Purcell CC, 320 Jack Purcell Lane, Elgin near Gilmour 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.
