ARG is starting again this Wednesday at 6.30pm, and will continue to meet every Wednesday from then on. Although this coming meeting is convening in a room at UCL, we are looking into the possibility of moving to Housmans book shop at Kings X in the future.

Please do come along, even if you have never attended before. This month we will be looking at some “key” texts giving us on overview of autonomy (in its political, economic, and philosophical contexts). We have decided to have a theme for each month, and delegate 2/3 people to draw up our reading lists each time.

This week we will be reading:

1. Chapter 1 (Chapter 7 is also recommended if one has the time) of The Subversion of Politics: European Autonomous Social Movements and the Decolonization of Everyday Life by George Katsiaficas. Available here.

2. Chapter 7 of Philosophy, Politics, Autonomy by Cornelius Castoriadis. Available here.
