This three-part workshop runs on November 6, 6-7:30 pm, November 8, 6-7:30 pm, and November 11, 2-3:30 pm.
Between the 24-hour news cycle and infinite scrolling newsfeeds on social media we’re exposed to so many injustices and outrages, rightly demanding our attention, that we can start to lose sight of the forest for the trees. This workshop aims to teach students how to make sense of all these events and identify the connections between them, not just through abstract statements about capitalism, neoliberalism, systemic racism, and other concepts, but through making a concrete analysis of the situation, based on systematic study.
The workshop will define and teach concepts such as structure and context, strategy and tactics, correlation of forces and hegemony, and then engage students in a limited approach to making their own analysis using those concepts.
