Uses of a Whirlwind Book Release Audio
On Sunday July 10th, the Team Colors, a millitant research collective, gave a great talk about their recent book, Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States. This edited volume of essays and interviews inquires into the current state of radical movements and social struggles in the United States.
Uses of a Whirlwind draws on the tradition of millitant and co-research: research conducted to further millitant politics and inquire into working class composition. This tradition spans from workers' survey that Marx conducted in the 1880s to studies of Italian factories in the 1960s, and continues today with research about and by precarious workers in contemporary Spain and communities in Argentina.
In this recording, Craig Hughes and Stevie Peace explain discuss the history of the project and some of the major themes of the work: social movement and changes in U.S. politcs and economy of the last forty years, labor struggles, the non-profit sector, the anti-globalization movement, and others.
