Queer Social Theory Summer Intensive Workgroup

Queer Social Theory Summer Intensive Workgroup
Wednesdays: June 1 through July 27, 2011, 7 pm to 9 pm
Silver School of Social Work
1 Washington Square North

This summer, The Counterpublic will produce their second FREE summer intensive workgroup. From the organizers that bought you the Queer Theory & Queer of Color Critique Workgroup in summer 2010, we are proud to invite you to participate in our new project on queer social theory.
Explore key historical, theoretical, and political texts that examine the ways in which capitalism and oppression are understood to those working to change it.
Gain accessible foundations on the works of Karl Marx, the Gay Liberationists of the 1970’s, and recent Queer and Queer of Color attempts to transform our political present.
The series of 9 weekly meetings is open to the public and free of charge. Ongoing, open enrollment for all: you are not required to attend all sessions and will have access to free reading materials that have been approved for fair use and are not in violation of copyright laws; for those outside of NYC, you will also be able to follow the workgroup readings online and engage in discourse with peers through our discussion tab.
