PART OF PHILOSOPHY FOOTBALL’S ART OUT OF REVOLUTION FESTIVAL
*Please book your place here (https://www.philosophyfootball.com/1917-seminar.html)*
‘The revolution is dead, long live the revolution’ is the theme of the afternoon seminar for the centenary of October 1917. Organised in association with Soundings (https://www.lwbooks.co.uk/soundings), ‘ a journal of politics and culture’. We aim to provide in the course of the afternoon three hours of participative discussion ranging over the meaning of revolution, then, and now, models of change, old and new, and the legacy of 1917 for how today’s Left organises with a strong historical, theoretical and cultural dimension.
John Medhurst, author of No Less than Mystic: A History of Lenin and the Russian Revolution for a 21st Century Left (http://repeaterbooks.com/books/no-less-than-mystic/)will be one of the event’s panellists, together with Kevin Morgan and Marina Prentoulis.
The seminar is chaired and introduced by Jeremy Gilbert, a regular contributor to the Guardian Opinion pages, Professor of Cultural and Political Theory at the University of East London and author of Common Ground: Democracy and Collectivity in an Age of Individualism.
The seminar is free (except for a small fee to cover admin costs) though advance booking is essential.
