CONJUNCTURAL ANALYSIS FOR ORGANIZED STRUGGLE
*Read until the end for the application form*
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, October 15. 

Conjunctural analysis (or the analysis of the current context) is a powerful method for studying, analyzing, and ultimately transforming our present moment. The practice of conjunctural analysis is rooted in an understanding of economic, social, and political factors that have created the conditions in which we struggle, and it is used by political and social organizations across the world to strengthen strategies and tactics in the fight for a better world. 

This 5-week course will introduce participants with the skills to conduct their own conjunctural analysis of our current moment. We will develop skills in collective research, explore the development of this method by Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci, study the examples from contemporary revolutionary organizations, and develop our own conjunctural analysis in groups. 

We know that only with a clear understanding of our past and present, will we be ready to build the future we are fighting for! 

 

WHEN:October 19- November 16, 2021.  Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30 PM EST and Saturdays: 12-2 PM EST

WHERE:This is a hybrid course! Local participants are encouraged to select the in-person attendance option at The People’s Forum.  Those unable to visit us in New York can select the virtual option and participate via Zoom.

*If you select the in-person option, please plan to attend all sessions in-person.  Collective work will depend on as much consistency as possible.*

WHO:This is an intermediate level course intended for militants and organizers who have had previous experience(s)  participating in political education programs.  

This course is free for attendees.
