What is Family Abolition?
July 11 + 14, 6-8pm ET
“Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal,” wrote Marx and Engels in 1884. But ideas about what family abolition might be--which family? why? how?-- has changed radically over the past two centuries. It has been reimagined by utopian socialists, Bolsheviks, Maoists, queers, Black feminists, and present-day communists. This course will introduce you to the theory of family abolition and explore its relevance to contemporary struggle.
