Critical Readings: Lifestyle Politics and Radical Activism (3)
We continue reading 'Lifestyle politics and radical Activism' by Laura Portwood-Stacer.
The book explores how radical anarchist activists position their own lifestyles within projects of resistance. Various lifestyle practices, from consumption to personal style to sexual relationships, are studied to address how identity and cultural practices can be used as tools of political dissent.
In this third meeting of the reading group for this book, we will discuss Chapter 4 (30 pages), which has subchapters:
* Defining and performing anarchist identity
* Disclaiming anarchist identity
* Social identities, discipline, and accountability
* Policing the boundaries of anarchist identity
* Lifestyle and the re-centering of privileged subjects
* Ironic sincerity
The book is availabe in pdf format here:
It is not strictly necessary to read the book to join the meeting, although it is recommended in order to participate in the discussion.
The chapters will be presented and resumed by attendants of the group, and then the whole group will discuss its content.
The format of the reading group will be explained at the beginning of the meeting.
The event is held in english.
