Anarchist Conference Announced

The Institute for Anarchist Studies and Institute for Social Ecology has announced that it will be sponsoring the Renewing the Anarchist Tradition Conference from September 29th to October 1st at Goddard College in Vermont. If you're interested in learning about libertarian socialism and anarchism and you have a free weekend in the fall, this is the place to be.

"The Renewing the Anarchist Tradition (RAT) conference, sponsored by the Institute for Anarchist Studies, will again take place at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont over the September 29-October 1, 2006 weekend. The conference aims to provide a scholarly space in which to both reexamine and reinvigorate the social and political tradition of anarchism. RAT is meant as one contribution to the project of developing a more rigorous as well as contemporary theoretical framework for anarchism, and to assist in nurturing new generations of anti-authoritarian public intellectuals. As in the past, we hope that RAT continues to raise difficult questions in a support, participatory environment among anarchist peers."
