LONDON PROGRESSIVE JOURNAL

Hi there

The people at London Progressive Journal are launching an online literary review. The new site will feature accessible 800-word reviews of new titles (mainly non-fiction, with some fiction). The site will have no overt political orientation or affiliation.

Contributors will be academics or journalists. Whilst we will not be able to pay for contributions, we can promise a degree of exposure (and, of course, free review copies).

If you would be interested in contributing, please drop me a line: nathaniel.mehr@gmail.com.

If you happen to know anyone who might be interested, do feel free to forward this email to them.

Kind regards
Nathaniel Mehr

Progress or Regress?

The Future of the Left under Obama

 

FREE and open to the public

Saturday, December 6th 2008

3:00pm

 

 

Silver Center (NYU)
Room 405
100 Washington Square East

 

 

 

Panelists include:

Chris Cutrone (Platypus)
Stephen Duncombe (author of Dream: Re-Imagining Progressive Politics in an Age of Fantasy)
Pat Korte (New School SDS)
Charles Post (Solidarity)
Paul Street (author of Barack Obama and the Future of American Politics, 2008)

 

 

The Platypus Affiliated Society in New York presents a moderated panel discussion and audience Q&A to critically evaluate the widespread assumption that the election of Barack Obama presents an opportunity for today’s Leftists. Asking how opportunity can be distinguished from opportunism, Platypus has invited several intellectuals and activists to publicly think through the foreseeable pitfalls and potentials posed by the passing of the Bush-era into the age of Obama.
