Video: Prefigurative Politics in Social Movements

I've embedded a 10 part series showing a panel from the recent Left Forum in New York City. The panel is called "Building New Social Relations: Prefigurative Politics in Movements."

The speakers are:
  • Chair: Andrew Cornell, American Studies, New York Univeristy
  • Chris Dixon, History of Consciousness, University of California, Santa Cruz
  • Cindy Milstein, Institute for Anarchist Studies
  • Deborah Gould, Sociology, University of Pittsburth
  • Harjit Sing Gill, Institute for Anarchist Studies

Chris Dixon, who speaks in Parts 2 and 3, currently lives here in Sudbury and is active with Sudbury Against War and Occupation. He speaks about his PhD research, which involved interviewing 50 anti-authoritarian activists from cities across the U.S. and Canada. All of the speakers are really good, and well worth taking the time to watch!
