Creolizing Rosa Luxemburg: The Mass Strike Past and Present

Sat, May 1, 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

$7.00 – $11.00

with Rafael Khachaturian, Josué Ricardo López, and Sami Zemni

Often misread as a narrowly economic phenomenon, Rosa understood general or mass strikes as harbingers of the revolution to come. The speakers in this fourth session reposition her analysis in the contexts of the United States Civil War, the Arab Spring, and the twenty-first century migrations northward through the American hemisphere.

Authors and essays discussed are: “The Living Pulsebeat of the Revolution”: Reading Luxemburg and Du Bois on the Strike”, by Rafael Khachaturian; “Luxemburg on Tahrir Square: Reading the Arab Revolutions with Rosa Luxemburg’s The Mass Strike”, by Sami Zemni, Brecht De Smet, and Koenraad Boegaert; and, “Migrant Caravans and Luxemburg’s Spontaneous Mass Strike∏, Josué Ricardo López

Rafael Khachaturian, University of Pennsylvania; Sami Zemni, Ghent University; Josué Ricardo López, University of Pittsburgh
