Black Against Empire: Learning the Lessons of the Black Panther Party

Wednesday, April 23rd - 6:30 PM

Please join us for a discussion of Joshua Bloom and Waldo E. Martin's
recent book, "Black Against Empire: The History and Politics of the Black
Panther Party." Come to discuss with others the legacies and the lessons of
the BPP, based on our shared reading of this ground-breaking scholarly
study of one of the United States most important home-grown--and
misunderstood--revolutionary organizations. What does the history of the
BPP have to teach those seeking to build a movement for radical social
change today?


*SCRUTINY: Poetry, Thought, Politics*
*Radical Medievalism: David Hadbawnik and Daniel Remein*

Friday, April 25th 6-9PM

What is the relationship between poetry and politics?  What does an
attention to something as seemingly distant as the medieval period have to
offer radical poetry and politics today?  How has the institutionalization
of literary studies in "English Departments" affected the ways in which
poets and critics think through (or fail to think through) the articulation
of the political and poetic?  More specifically, how does the work of Jack
Spicer, an openly Queer radical poet with an affinity for the medieval,
continue to speak to our moment?  At 6:00 pm on Friday, 25 April 2014,
poet-critics David Hadbawnik and Daniel Remein will lead “Radical
Medievalism,” a seminar attending to these questions. Following talks and
moderated discussion, Hadbawnik and Remein will read from their recent work
in poetry and translation.

*Red History Lecture Series*

Devotion and Resistance: Bizhan Jazani and the Iranian Fedai

Saturday, May 3rd 3-5PM

Communist historian Doug Enaa Greene will lecture on the Iranian Marxist
theorist Bizhan Jazani (1938-1975) and the armed Communist group, Organization
of Iranian People's Fedai Guerrillas. The Fedai were formed in the late
1960s as a guerrilla movement to overthrow the US-backed Shah of Iran and
bring about a socialist revolution. Although they have been overshadowed in
history by Ayatollah Khomeini and the rise of the Islamic Republic , it was
the Fedai who spearheaded resistance to the Shah.
