Reading for January: On the Poverty of Student Life

For our first event of the new year we’ll be meeting again at Riffraff on Sunday, January 6th from 12-4. Books, pamphlets and more on sale, with our reading discussion starting at 2:30.

Our reading this month is another classic and somewhat long one – we’ll be discussing On the Poverty of Student Life, a Situationist text published by students at the University of Strasbourg in 1966 and a touchstone for the waves of student rebellion taking place at the time. For more background on the piece (which might be helpful considering it makes a number of historical references and uses some jargon!) you can check out the Wikipedia article here.

The full text is available at the anarchist library and is available in audio form from Resonance Audio Distro here.
