This month we’ll be reading “The Great Caliban: The Struggle Against the Rebel Body,” a chapter from Silvia Federici’s classic work, Caliban and the Witch!
"We can see, in other words, that the human body and not the steam engine, and not even the clock, was the first machine developed by capitalism."
History, gender, Foucault, surgeons stealing the bodies of executed prisoners from the gallows – it’s got something for everyone.
We’ll be meeting in Clark Park by the chess tables on Sunday, May 22nd, from 1-3. Bring a blanket or something else to sit on in case the chairs are full with other people enjoying the warm weather!
