|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Saturday, repeating until November 17, 2018

$15 – $100

Duration: This eight-week course meets Saturdays 12-2pm, from September 29 to November 17. 

This course will address the idea of progress in History through a careful and close reading of texts from Adorno and Horkheimer.

Can we rethink a new principle of hope that can build movement politics against the cynicism and pessimism of the present?
