Kathi Weeks: debunking utopianism's critics

program date: 
Mon, 09/01/2014
Joe Clement brings Kathi Weeks back on the show to talk about another chapter in her book The Problem With Work: marxism, feminism, antiwork politics, and postwork imaginaries: utopianism. Kathi describes both realistic and deliberately unrealistic invocations of the utopianism, various ways of articulating utopianism (critical utopias, ironic anti-utopianism, utopian demands), and the push and pull between crusaders and critics of utopianism.

Kathi Weeks is a professor of Women's Studies at Duke University. 20:24 minutes (18.68 MB)

Raising Expectations, and Raising Hell: Jane McAlevey's book on rank-and-file unionism

program date: 
Mon, 09/01/2014
Old Moles Bill Resnick and Norm Diamond talk about union organizing by way of a mutual review of Jane McAlevey's book "Raising Expecations, and Raising Hell: my decade fighting for the labor movement". They consider the official and cynical meaning of labor day, but also the stagnation of the labor movement as it's moved away from rank-and-file organizing, direct action, and using workers' power to drive social change. 18:32 minutes (16.97 MB)
