jacobin reading group7:00 pm - 9:00 pmJacobin is an "independent leftist magazine".
Be there or be a capitalist stooge, and tell a friend. We have yet to decide on the readings for this session and are opening the floor to suggestions. My top three articles are:
(1) Liberalism and Gentrification – of immediate relevance to our fair city.
(2) The Promise of Socialist Feminism – I was raised by a socialist feminist, so this is near and dear to my heart.
(3) Timothy Snyder’s Lies – probably I’m the only one interested in this piece on the politics of history, but it’s really good, and deals with some cultural battles the Left has sadly lost and should maybe consider rejoining.
Sometime before Monday, please let us know your top three picks from the Jacobin magazine or website. Hopefully there will be a few consensus selections and we can put a group top three to some kind of vote.s a contact for reading list suggestions?
