Welcome! Newsletter 29.
Other than that, I’m afraid new writing is limited to German readers. Standard outlet, junge Welt. In sports: women’s ice hockey world championships, the new guard in men’s tennis, tennis vs. pickleball, the 1993 knife attack on Monica Seles. In foreign affairs: Finnish elections, Austrian social democrats looking for a new leader (and direction).
Some of my texts on (post)anarchism were translated into Russian for a little booklet titled “Post-Anarchism without the Tinted Glasses”. I’m not sure which ones, but if I find out, it’ll give me an excuse to mention the pamphlet a second time on this blog. Grand!
Speaking of second (third?) times: There’s now a PDF with the conversation on anarchism I had with Matt Wilson for the latest issue of Anarchist Studies.
I also appear in a German pamphlet titled Organisatorische Fragen. It’s brief, but I had a little exchange with the authors and they asked if they could use some quotes. Sure thing.
Another PDF you might want to check out is a response I received from Eric Laursen to my review of his book The Operating System: An Anarchist Theory of the Modern State. I recommend looking into it, Eric pointed out some shortcomings he found in my text.
One excuse for the rather modest original output this month is that I spent its first week in Hamburg attending a conference on the Kurdish Revolution. An interesting event in many ways, and banned from the university at the last minute. But it all worked out well, can’t stop the movement! I also got to hang for the first time in years with the mighty Ramsey Kanaan, my publisher at PM Press. It was a pleasure.
Our friends at Riseup are doing another fundraiser. There are much worse places to put some money into.
More next month. Stay safe!
