Upcoming Spring 2018 Workshops

 

Thursday, March 22, 10:00-11:00am in Center for Social Justice (130 Poulton Hall)

Book Talk and Breakfast: The Politics of Attack: Communiqués and Insurrectionary Violence by Michael Loadenthal, Ph.D.

Register here.

About the talk: Since the early 2000s, global, underground networks of insurrectionary anarchists have carried out thousands of acts of political violence. This book is an exploration of the ideas, strategies, and history of these political actors that engage in a confrontation with the oppressive powers of the state and capital. This book challenges the reader to consider the historically ignored articulations put forth by those who communicate through sometimes violent political acts-vandalism, sabotage, arson and occasional use of explosives. These small acts of violence are announced and contextualized through written communiqués, which are posted online, translated, and circulated globally. This book offers the first contemporary history of these digitally-mediated networks, and seeks to locate this tendency within anti-state struggles from the past.

About the presenter: Dr. Michael Loadenthal is a Visiting Professor of Sociology and Social Justice at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio), and the Executive Director of the Peace and Justice Studies Association. He has taught courses on political violence, terrorism, and sociology at Georgetown University, George Mason University, University of Cincinnati, University of Malta's Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies, and Jessup Correctional Institution, a maximum-security men's prison. Michael's research has involved ethnographic studies with North American abortion providers, Jamaican Rastafarians, indigenous Mexican revolutionaries, British eco-terrorists, and Palestinian guerrillas. Outside the classroom Michael has been a social movement organizer, trainer, and strategist for 20 years, helping to plan protest campaigns and develop counter-institutions on four continents amongst anarchist, anti-racist/anti-fascist, eco-defense, reproductive health, anti-war, and anti-capitalist movements. Michael also has the displeasure of being one of the remaining 59 “J20” defendants currently facing more than 60 years in prison for demonstrations which occurred during the 2017 Presidential inauguration. Michael can be reached at Loadenthal@protonmail.com or twitter.com/mloadenthal. He also posts all of his work online for free at gmu.academia.edu/MichaelLoadenthal.
