What is to be done?
This is the question first posed by the 19th century Russian writer Nikolai Chernyshevky and later, famously, by Lenin. Today, on the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, left-wing movements across the globe find themselves confronting a portentous historical moment. With right-wing populism on the ascent from India to Europe to the United States, progressives and radicals alike face enormous challenges.
On Sunday June 4, we will explore those challenges and once again grapple with Lenin's question. Join us for a backyard discussion, wine, and close reading of Zizek's Resistance is Surrender.
