Temporary Autonomous Zones, Anarchist Gatherings, 1988-2017
Assocsiate Professor, Department of Sociology, York University
Despite the fact that the phrase “anarchist conference” seems like the punchline to a joke, anarchist gatherings and conferences are sites of learning, identity formation, and networking. These events build that “new world in the shell of the old.” How and what they build changes through time and space. This presentation will examine the programs of anarchist gatherings since 1988 in order to map the shifting strategies and frameworks of contemporary anarchist movements.
