Terror Incognita- a group reading and discussion of current anarchist and queer theory. This course is being made available through the People’s School of Richmond, and is a free school course.

Terror Incognita is a recently published zine (homemade magazine) featuring discussion, analysis and questioning of current trends in the North American anarchist  scenes. The text also heavily features current queer practice and theory as well as discussion of terrorism.

You don’t have to be an anarchist or agree with anarchism to participate in this class.

The basic format of the class will be group discussions of the text. Ideally people will read the texts before coming to each meeting, but we might also read the texts outloud to each other at the meetings, as this is a method that has worked well for us during previous courses.

Classes will meet at 8pm on Wednesday nights starting the 2nd half of July at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective. (2005 Barton Avenue)

We will make pdf versions of texts available online, and have some photocopies available as well. Folks will need to bring the printed texts to the class.
