Reading Group: Organizing for Power

November 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Reading Group Graphic. Text: Reading Group: Organizing Power: Stealing Fire From the Gods. Monday, November 30. 7pm-9pm. Zoom Call. RSVP for link.

Join the Houston DSA Political Education Working Group for our biweekly Reading Group! This week, we are discussing the article Organizing for Power: Stealing Fire From the Gods, by Amelia Davenport in Cosmonaut Magazine.

Davenport argues for leftist organizers to reclaim the ideas of Taylor’s Scientific Management, making a broader argument for the relevance of cybernetics, cultural revolution in the workers’ movement, and a Promethean vision of socialism. The linked article also includes a podcast interview with Davenport.

The Houston DSA Reading Group is open to members and non-members alike. We strive to be accessible to all attendees regardless of background knowledge or expertise. If you are unable to afford the book, contact us for a non-distributional copy. See you there!
