Description

Until the 1960’s, the Left in the US was pri­mar­i­ly defined by the gov­ern­ment and the pub­lic imag­i­na­tion as the Com­mu­nist Par­ty USA. The col­lapse of the Com­mu­nist Left, which was sealed by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 has left an enor­mous vac­u­um as to what the Left real­ly was and its last­ing con­tri­bu­tions to the rad­i­cal imag­i­na­tion both polit­i­cal­ly and cul­tur­al­ly. Today it must be exam­ined what ideas are at stake in groups claim­ing to be Left, the mil­i­tant left wing of the Demo­c­ra­t­ic par­ty, the small groups claim­ing to be rev­o­lu­tion­ary, the eco­log­i­cal move­ments that tend towards a social­ist agen­da, anoth­er emer­gent fem­i­nism inter alia. This course will dis­cuss what it means to be Left, both in the past and in the present and will posit some thoughts for a new left for­ma­tion ade­quate to the demands of the con­tem­po­rary world.
