We will make the focus of the course issues at the intersection of
race and class in the context of capitalism.  We will study Hegel,
Marx, Du Bois, Marcuse, Angela Davis, Critical Theory, Critical Race
Theory and other significant theoretical positions (including feminist
theory, queer theory, subaltern studies) ... along with specific
anticapitalist material.

The course will be lively, nonconformist, counter-conventional,
critical, and deeply intellectual in both pedagogy and content.  It
will be grounded in the realities and struggles of our time. A
Syllabus will be sent out before the course begins (but the Syllabus
will be modified as we proceed through the course ... based on the
needs and interests of the those assembled in the class).

Du Bois, was recently fired -- for political reasons -- from Temple University.  He has accepted my invitation to co-teach with me this Fall Term in the Monday evening LIBERATION & OWNERSHIP course (5-8pm / McNeil Building, Room 167-68) beginning September 8th and ending December 8th).  Because of Dr. Monteiro's presence (and that of a number of his friends, colleagues, and comrades who will be sitting in on the class), this is going to be an incredibly exciting course.
> I want to invite each of you to join the class as well and to share your own important insights, analysis, and contributions.  As always, I am very open to arranging classes around your own presentations and interventions; so, if you have ideas please let me know. In the hopes that you will be attending, I will be sending you an initial set of emails later today ... in case you decide you would like to begin preparing for our course.
> Please seriously consider attending. You will be warmly welcomed.  Nothing would make me happier than to see you again ... and to continue to learn with you! It is through these extended interactions and dialogues that our intellectual community is made wiser, more loving, more powerful (and more dangerous).
