Kasai Masai

KASAI MASAI AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

Summer is nearly here or so we thought a couple of weeks ago! Thought it was too good to last. Anyway, we welcome back Kasai Masai (see http://www.kasaimasai.com) who are sure to bring some sunshine into our lives.

They are a band of truly wonderful musicians once again bringing their unique African sounds to Forest Roots. As usual we will have surprise guests and local singers as well as The Flats Family Band and, after forsaking us as he had a gig, Nick Pickett will be back too.

This will be the last night before the summer as otherwise we would be competing with a much bigger event. Not allowed to say the word due to copyright issues but you know what I mean.

So that’s Kasai Masai at Forest Roots on Friday 29th June, at The Lord Rookwood, 314 Cann Hall Road, Forest Gate, London, E11 3NW.
Starts 8.30

Stay forever young
Jenny and Caroline

Karl Marx

FIRST SOUTH ASIAN HISTORICAL MATERIALISM CONFERENCE

http://www.sacw.net/article2701.html

Call for Papers: New Cultures of the Left

First South Asian Historical Materialism Conference (New Delhi, 3-4 April 2013)

The Delhi HM Conference ‘New Cultures of the Left’, the first South Asian Historical Materialism Conference, will be held at the Conference Centre, Delhi University, on 3-4 April 2013. The conference occurs against several backgrounds that make the revival of the left and the reemergence of Marxist and other forms of radical theory and politics imperative. These ‘backgrounds’ include the massive convulsions in the world economy from the financial crash of 2008 onwards; the great uprisings in the Arab world that dominated the whole of 2011 with their remarkable mass-based struggles for democracy; the emergence in the West of spontaneous forms of resistance to Austerity politics and its fierce attacks on the lives of millions of people both in and out of employment.

The background to the Conference also includes the consolidation of powerful capitalist interests in countries likeIndia where big business now shapes public policy without the shackles of ‘socialism’, and government and business have jointly undermined the unions, massively casualised labour markets and accelerated the dispossession of whole communities. The consolidation, likewise, of deeply authoritarian tendencies, both secular and religious, that stand for the eradication of existing constitutional democracies and the rights they offer to the mass of citizens in favour of stronger, more repressive states or states reconstructed on non-secular ‘fundamentalist’ lines. And last but not least, the deep crisis of the Party-controlled left and its inability to debate issues in open, democratic and politically creative ways, much less to attract a new generation of workers and youth to the cause of a radical left politics and culture.

The conference is seen as both South Asian and internationalist in a wider sense. We invite papers (20 minute presentations) or panel proposals (for sessions of 1 hr 45 mins) under any of the broad themes below:

1) The legacies of Marx (Marxism as a theoretical/philosophical tradition);

2) Perspectives for socialism in the twenty-first century;

3) The Left, religion, caste & cultural politics today;

4) Violence, war and modernity (including papers on fascism, both historical & contemporary);

5) New debates on sexual politics, and Marxism and Feminism;

6) The return of immiseration: workers, work, land and communities;

7) The crisis and finance capital today;

8) Red & Green: an integration of perspectives;

9) Struggles for democracy;

10) Capitalism and contemporary media cultures;

11) Culture on the Left (Literature, art, film);

12) Histories of the Left and Marxism in South Asia and internationally;

13) New developments in Marxist philosophy;

14) The contemporary relevance of Marx’s Capital.

Paper abstracts and panel proposals submissions should try and stay within 300 words, and be sent in to: submissionsdelhihm@gmail.com by 1st September 2012.

See: http://www.sacw.net/article2701.html and http://www.historicalmaterialism.org/news/distributed/cfp-new-cultures-of-the-left-first-south-asian-historical-materialism-conference-new-delhi-3-4-april-2013

Human Rights

RIGHTS, SOLIDARITY AND JUSTICE: WORKING PEOPLE ORGANIZING, PAST AND PRESENT

The Labor and Working-Class History Association invites proposals for panels, roundtables, and workshops for its national conference in New York next June, 2013.  

Deadline for submissions is: September 15, 2012.

CALL FOR PAPERS: ‘Rights, Solidarity and Justice: Working People Organizing, Past and Present’

LAWCHA National Conference, June 6-8, 2013, New York City

Meeting in a year in which surging corporate power has threatened both unions and democracy as we know it, the 2013 LAWCHA conference in New York City will focus on how varied groups of working people have built the solidarity needed to challenge their employers, each other, their communities, and the state to seek justice and improve their lives. Historically and today women, immigrants and people of color have often been at the forefront of these struggles.  Many have seen the revitalization of their organizations – unions, cooperatives, mutual aid societies, and political movements – as critical to their struggles for equality and democracy in and beyond the workplace.  In the present moment, faced with obstacles to organizing that evoke earlier centuries, workers and their allies are creating innovative organizational forms and strategies in the U.S.and around the world. LAWCHA seeks panels, roundtables, and workshop proposals that put today’s challenges and successes in deeper perspective, including comparisons across time, space, and national borders, and that explore the rich range of working peoples’ lives and movements, from Early American history to the Wisconsin upheaval and Occupy Wall Street.    

Meeting a few blocks from the site of OWS at Brooklyn College’s Graduate Center for Worker Education, located in Manhattan in a city that has long been a laboratory of innovative working-class self-organization, we welcome panel proposals of all kinds, including those that are historical, contemporary, transnational, or comparative, and those that combine activists and academics. LAWCHA is also interested in proposals for workshops and roundtables that examine past experience and current strategies for work in areas of LAWCHA’s on-going activity – historical memory and commemoration; teaching labor history in the schools; building global networks of labor historians; and labor activism and solidarity, as well as skills workshops on the art of organizing, op-ed writing and other media work, building labor centers and more.  We envision the possibility of threads of linked sessions in each of these areas of interest forming a significant part of the program. We also encourage more conversational sessions than the conventional 3 paper /commentator format. While we welcome individual paper proposals, we are especially keen to receive proposals for complete sessions.

Send proposals for panels (or individual papers), roundtables, and workshops to LAWCHA conference program committee: lawcha.cfp+2013NYC@gmail.com

Proposals should include brief abstracts for sessions and individual papers and short biographies/c.v.s for participants.

DEADLINE for submissions is: September 15, 2012; notification by December 15, 2012.

Conference sessions and accommodations will be in and around the NYU/Brooklyn College campus in lower Manhattan.
