SOCIALIST HUMANISM, THE ANTI-HUMANIST TURN, AND THE CONSEQUENCES FOR THE LEFT

Sunday December 11, 2010
2:00 PM

Speakers: Barbara Epstein and Kevin Anderson

A look at the contributions of Marxist and/or socialist humanists, and the causes, and consequences for the left, of the challenge emerging from the anti-humanism associated with structuralism and post-structuralism. What would it take to revive socialist humanism as a philosophy of the contemporary left? How does the legacy of Maoism from the New Left affect this? Among the thinkers to be discussed are the socialist humanists Raya Dunayevskaya, Frantz Fanon, Erich Fromm, and Jean-Paul Sartre, and E. P. Thompson; among the structuralists and post-structuralists, Louis Althusser, Michel Foucault, Claude Lévi-Strasss, and Edward Said.

Barbara Epstein teaches in the History of Consciousness Department at University of California, Santa Cruz. She is the author of Political Protest and Cultural Revolution: Nonviolent Direct Action in the 1970s and 1980s (1991) and most recently, The Minsk Ghetto, 1941-1943: Jewish Resistance and Soviet Internationalism (2008), both with University of California Press.

Kevin Anderson teaches in the Department of Sociology at University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author of Foucault and the Iranian Revolution (2005, coauthored with Janet Afary) and most recently, Marx at the Margins: Nationalism, Ethnicity and Non-Western Societies (2010), both with University of Chicago Press..
