Postanarchism Listserv Now Online

postanarchism * poststructuralist anarchism

This group is being created with the hopes of stirring things up
within contemporary anarchist theory and praxis by synthesizing
with it key concepts and ideas from critical theory, post-leftism,
poststructuralism, situationism, postcolonialism, autonomism,
postmodernism, existentialism, postfeminism, zapatismo and
other contemporary critical-theoretical tendencies. Potential
anarchist theorists of interest might include Todd May, Mikhail
Bakunin, Saul Newman, Emma Goldman, Luis Gambone, Max
Stirner, Hakim Bey, Errico Malatesta, Wolfi Landstreicher, John
Zerzan etc.   Parallels between the concepts and ideas of these
and of theorists like Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Felix
Guattari, Guy Debord, Giorgio Agamben, Jean Baudrillard,
Manuel De Landa, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, Judith
Butler, Chris Hables Gray, Luce Irigaray, Donna Haraway etc.
might be brought to the floor for consideration.   Discussion
could include both theoretical and practical applicational aspects
of such syntheses; the title of the list "postanarchism" is a nod to
Newman's call to move beyond classical anarchism into a more
open and hybrid theory.
