POLT 257 - Mutual Aid

HC SSCI CD
2 credits
The Covid-19 pandemic has rekindled interest in mutual aid and sparked debate about its political implications. Could these cooperatives herald a new stage in social evolution? Are they anti-capitalist or accommodationist? Is mutual aid about helping people abandoned by the state or creating anarchist utopias? This course will delve into such questions, drawing on case studies from around the world. Key authors include Peter Kropotkin, W.E.B. Du Bois, Sho Konishi, and Alondra Nelson.
This course is appropriate for new students.
