Studies in the Works of Antonio Gramsci with Piruz Alemi

Sun, October 31, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

$15.00 – $45.00

A Cultural Politics Series

Antonio Gramsci is widely known throughout the world for his impact on social and political thought. 4 more sessions of this seminar continue a close reading of Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks, delving into key themes related to civil society, the state, hegemony, subaltern studies, cultural analysis, race, class and gender studies, film studies, linguistics, and critical theory.

Throughout these sessions, we will look to connect cultures and their human rights struggles. We will also explore those who influenced Gramsci, particularly Marx, but also Machiavelli and Croce. This seminar is accessible to people at all levels of familiarity with Gramsci’s work, including those just beginning their studies of Gramsci.

Piruz Alemi holds a PhD in political economy from New School for Social Research as well as a MFA in documentary film making from CCNY. He is director of the People of Color International Cultural Exchange Film Festival and teaches at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
