|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 4, 2018

$85 – $115

Duration: This is a ten-week class on Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm, starting October 2 and ending December 4.

Content: We’ll explore some key concepts about human beings, society and history, and our relationship to the rest of nature. Readings will be short and accessible excerpts from writings by Marx and Engels or later Marxists. I believe that this theory can help us analyze the social and economic realities and structures we live in–who holds power and how–and fight more effectively for liberation.

In a continuing attempt to increase access for those who have been historically excluded, turned off or silenced by the way this theory is often taught and discussed, we are offering this intro class for women only. Everyone who identifies as a woman is welcome.

Some of the central questions that we’ll address are:

How did the oppression of women, and the division of societies into people who work and others who exploit them, originate and develop historically? What are the driving dynamics of capitalism that make it make it so productive, innovative, brutal and ecologically destructive? What intellectual tools can help us understand industry’s complex impacts on our bodies, our psyches and the nature around us—impacts that capitalists, and people who think like them, don’t want to see or cannot see? What did Marx understand—and not understand—about white supremacy and Eurocentrism, and how has that analysis been deepened and modified by later Marxists?
