Marxist Reading & Discussion Group
January 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=30052
The Marxist Reading & Discussion Group is welcome to new and seasoned readers of Marxist literature! Please join us as we work through and discuss some of the seminal works of foundational leftist thinkers, with regards to how they pertain to modern political struggles. All discussions are based on works that are broken down into shorter, digestible chunks with no prior experience (or attendance) needed, so feel free to drop in as your schedule permits. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
We will be meeting on the patio at Chuck’s Hop Shop in the Central District (unless it’s cold, in which case we migrate inside). Our meeting format is currently in person, with the reading discussion starting at 7pm! Feel free to come a bit earlier (6:30pm) to get settled, order a food or a drink, and introduce yourself! Please be respectful of fellow attendees by assessing your COVID risk, and consider taking a test before attending or wearing a mask if that risk seems high!
Discussion and Readings for this week: We’ll be finishing our discussion of W.E.B. Du Bois, Black Reconstruction, by reading the final chapter (Chapter 17: “The Propaganda of History”) (link). Prior reading not necessary (we’ve previously discussed chapters 1-2 and 7-8), but encouraged!
