Book Talk: Workers’ Self-management in Spain

4 Dec

Michael Matteson, an Australian scholar and activist, will discuss his research into Workers’ Self-management in the Spanish Revolution: Proletarian Spontaneity versus Anarchist Organization. He will address recent work on the subject including Frank Mintz’s just-translated book criticizing the role of the CNT and anarcho-syndicalist militants in favor of unaligned workers’ action, and labor historian (and POUM veteran) Victor Alba’s Marxist account of workers’ self-management that emphasizes the role of anarchist education and anarcho-syndicalist union practices in enabling workers’ direct action.

Monday, Dec. 9, 7:00 pm, at Bindlestiff
