Rage Against the Rule of Money
A Talk by John Holloway
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 | 7.00 – 9.00 PM
Concourse Level, Room C203
CUNY Grad Center
365 5th Avenue, NY, NY 10016
JOHN HOLLOWAY is a Professor in the Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla in Mexico. His publications include Crack Capitalism (Pluto, 2010), Change the World Without Taking Power (Pluto, 2005), Zapatista! Rethinking Revolution in Mexico (co-editor, Pluto, 1998) and Global Capital, National State and The Politics of Money (co-editor, 1994).
His latest book, Crack Capitalism, argues that radical change can only come about through the creation, expansion and multiplication of 'cracks' in the capitalist system. These cracks are ordinary moments or spaces of rebellion in which we assert a different type of doing.
John Holloway's previous book, Change the World Without Taking Power, sparked a world-wide debate among activists and scholars about the most effective methods of going beyond capitalism.

Seminar on Political Organization Essex March 12th
Essex Centre for Work, Organization and Society Seminar
Lessons of 2011: Three Theses on Political Organization
Rodrigo Nunes, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande Do Sul
March 12th, 4PM-6PM @ University of Essex Room 5N.7.23
With the Arab Spring, the Spanish indignados, Occupy and so much more, 2011 is likely to go down in history as a very special year – perhaps even the beginning of something. But what would that something be? This presentation attempts to draw some conclusions about the present state and future of politics and organization by examining the practices of the movements that erupted in the last year. Thinking beyond their usual representation by the media, trying to avoid either describing them as something entirely new and unheard of or as manifestations of an ultimately non-political culture, what can be the lessons of 2011?

Underground Politics: Belarus
Friday, March 9, 2012 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Occupy Chicago Headquarters, 500 W Cermak, Room 501,
This teach-in will explore the effects of state repression on contemporary political practice in Belarus. When “traditional” methods for free speech and civil disobedience aren’t available, how does one adapt? The facilitator, a young anarchist philosopher from Minsk, will discuss some of the noncommercial and alternative spaces in his hometown that have thrived under the blanket of neoliberalism. A short video about recent crackdowns will be shown, as well as a film about the Masterskaya squat that existed in Minsk from May to October of 2008. We’ll also hear about Rebel Studies Library, an educational project he began with friends.
Call for Papers: ‘The Anomie of the Earth’ – UNC Chapel Hill 3-5 May 2012
@ The Institute for the Arts and Humanities/Global Education Center
in collaboration with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and NWO
The conference The Anomie of the Earth is a follow-up to the Post/autonomy conference held in Amsterdam in May 2011.
While the Post/autonomy meeting focused on the European dissemination of autonomist thought, the second conference will build on its American location and explore a plurality of notions and practices of cultural-political autonomy. Though privileging the context of North and South America, the conference will also address European, African and Asian perspectives.
