The Howard Zinn Memorial Lecture Series
From the Organizers of The Howard Zinn Memorial Lecture Series: We, as citizens, academics, and members of the 99%, would like to contribute to the conversation taking place at Occupy Boston about how to make a better, more equitable world for all of us. In the radical and participatory spirit of Occupy Boston and similar radical movements of the past, we see our role, as Giovanni Arrighi once argued, as helping the movement to develop its "own autonomy through an understanding of the broader processes, both national and global, in which their struggles [are] taking place" (The Winding Paths of Capital, New Left Review, Mar-Apr 2009). We wish to participate in the movement not from a position of authority, but one of mutual dialogue. While people know their situation much better than we ever will, as academics we are better positioned "to understand the wider context in which it develops" (Ibid). For this reason we have created a series of lectures in which academics lead a dialogue with Occupy Boston participants on issues of economic, political, and social justice. We call these lectures The Howard Zinn Memorial Lecture Series at Occupy Boston in honor of the late, great Boston Historian. For an archive of past lectures, click here.
