Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
This ZOOM workshop is intended to be a follow up to our first livestreamed workshop on running a reading/discussion group. Picking up where the livestream left off, Workshop 2 will see participants participate in a mock reading group session and get a better opportunity to ask questions of our experienced reading group facilitators to better prepare them for running their own group. We ask that participants in Workshop #2 have viewed Workshop #1 (linked below) and have read the sample piece (linked below), The Tyranny of Structurelessness, before attending.
