Beyond the State, Beyond Development, Beyond the Postmodern: Anarchy and Buen Vivir, a lecture by Gustavo Esteva

Gustavo at Unitierra

After an inspiring discussion on Zapatismo earlier this evening, Gustavo Esteva continues his rampage of enlightenment through the young minds of Wes tomorrow with a second lecture.

Organizers are billing this event as “The Alternative Hugo Black Lecture”, in contestation of the University’s choice to invite Israeli Supreme Court Justice Aharon Barak, a figure accused of normalizing torture, occupation, and apartheid in Palestine, to give the annual Hugo Black Lecture in the Memorial Chapel. Antonin Scalia, who spoke for the Hugo Black Lecture in spring 2012, drew intense protest for his reactionary judicial record.

Ross Levin ’15 with the details:

We are experiencing the end of an historical cycle, not just another crisis. All over the world, people are taking initiatives reclaiming the control of their lives and challenging the political system and dominant paradigms. What is the nature of these initiatives? How can we move past the logic of a neoliberal project of development to collectively reach that which lies beyond?
