Renewing the Anarchist Tradition
03 Jul 2000
The goal of this conference is to provide a scholarly space in which to both reexamine and reinvigorate the social and political tradition of anarchism. The conference will be held in Plainfield, Vermont from August 24th to the 27th.
The aim of this conference is to create a participatory forum for open thinking that could ultimately push anarchism past its own limitations. To this end, the conference will center around 30 half-hour presentations and followup discussions.
We still have a few openings for presentations that do one or more of the following:
*analyze and/or critique current social relations and dilemmas - from "globalization", nationalism, and new forms of hate and violence, to biotechnologies, modernity, etc.
*share work and ideas on anarchism's relevance and potential as a political/social theory as well as a practice, particularly within the emerging new social movements;
*attempt to grapple with and constructively challenge/build on standard anarchist notions in light of a radically changing world.

Our aim for this conference is modest: that in creating a forum in which to speculate on and refresh the anarchist tradition, anarchism may inch forward a bit as an ethos. Wh hope that this is one of many steps toward a critical anarchist theory and vision for the 21st century.
