livable communes

barricade-paris-1871“There are moments when a articular event or struggle enters vividly into the figurability of the present, and this seems to me to be the case with the Paris Commune today.”  Thus opens Communal Luxury: The Political Imaginary of the Paris Commune, Kristin Ross’s manifesto for new futures of the past.  What does the 19th century hold for us today?  What do the practices of livability in the commune commend to our unlivable world?

Join InterCcECT for a reading group session Tuesday 11 August, 3-5pm, at, fittingly The Bourgeois Pig (Red line: Fullerton).    We’ll plan to read the entire (shortish) book.
