Recent years have seen a remarkable new wave of engagement between radical political movements and established institutions of government and party politics; with decidedly mixed results. From the Syriza experiment to the emergence of Corbynism, what lessons can be learned, and how can we best hope to take advantage of the opportunities for radical democracy which the twenty-first century affords? What forms of leadership, strategy and organisation are possible and necessary in this new period?
Acclaimed thinker and co-author of several key works with Antonio Negri, Michael Hardt, will discuss these issue – as well as themes from their new book, Assembly – with Marina Prentoulis, Jeremy Gilbert and other participants in the seminar.
Saturday October 14th 2017
Senate House, Malet St, London WC1E 7HU
Free, all welcome, no advanced booking, please arrive promptly as space will be very limited.
Michael will also be speaking at a ticketed event in Finsbury Park earlier the same afternoon:‘ Opening the Commons: Technology, Leadership and Organisation in conversation with Michael Hardt on Assembly’.
