This Thursday, March 29, come see David Graeber discuss culture as creative refusal—how what we think of as primordial "cultures," historically, can just as easily be conceived as social movements which were to some degree successful in achieving their aims. This event will take place at 20 Cooper Sq., 5th Floor. Please RSVP! (David is an eminent anthropologist and anarchist who has been politically active for a long time, and active in the Occupy movement since its proto-beginnings in June 2011; he has called Occupy "the opening salvo in a wave of negotiations over the dissolution of the American Empire." His most recent book is Debt: The First Five Thousand Years.)
Also, if you're free on Friday from 2-5pm, come to Creative Activism in the Age of Digital Technologies, same place. It'll be awesome!
