Reading Gramsci for Today’s Movements

Sun, July 7 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Free – $85.00
Two photos, Women Life Freedom
Join us to study Antonio Gramsci’s works. We will explore Gramsci’s themes and concepts, including state-civil society relations, historical block, hegemony, spontaneity, strategy and tactic, and language.

We will follow Gramsci’s philological method drawing on linguistics, cinema, critical theory, literature, journalism, comics, animation, plastic arts, mass media and Machiavellian political studies. We will draw on the Woman, Life, Freedom movement and its documentary evidence along with other shared historical movements, experiences and cultures in U.S., Iran and worldwide, towards change and “What-ought-to-be.”

No prior knowledge of Gramsci is required. Gramsci session contributors lead the discussions on passages from Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks and bring their own experiences, philosophies and scholarship to our readings. The group is ongoing – please contact us if you wish to join the group in progress.

Convened by Piruz Alemi. Piruz has a PhD in Political Economy and an MFA in Documentary Film Making from City University of New York (CUNY). Piruz is an independent scholar-activist in Gramsci’s work and cultural studies, with a focus on the common struggle of politics of race in the U.S. and gender segregation in Iran and the wider region.
