The New SPACE (The New School for Pluralistic Anti-Capitalist Education)
Presents:
TIME FOR A RADICAL PARTY?
A talk by Stanley Aronowitz
Thursday, March 2 at 7:00 p.m.
The Left is fragmented into a large number of single issue movements around
solidarity, against the Iraq war, and in community organizations, and others
who either try to push the Democratic Party to the left or work in small
organizations that often call themselves parties or projects. The United
States does not have a radical political formation dedicated to linking
these movements and addressing broad national and global questions.
Aronowitz will argue that such a formation is especially vital in this
period of growing authoritarianism, the lack of a visible opposition, the
decline of the labor movement and absence of alternatives to capitalist
domination. This talk will outline the problem, discuss a specific proposal
and make suggestions about how to achieve it.
Stanley Aronowitz teaches sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center and is a
co-managing editor of the journal Situations: Project of the Radical
Imagination. He has written more than 200 articles for encyclopedias, book
chapters, journals, magazines and newspapers. The 23 books he has written or
edited include False Promises (1973); Science as Power (1988); The Jobless
Future (1994), with William DiFazio; Implicating Empire (2003), co-edited
with Heather Guatney; How Class Works (2003); and Just Around the Corner:
The Paradox of the Jobless Recovery (2005). Currently, Aronowitz is working
on a biography of C. Wright Mills for Columbia University Press. His book
Time for a Radical Party? will appear in the Fall.
