Becoming Human: Life at the End of the “One World World”

UMass Anthropology lecturer Boone Shear will share his thoughts on solidarity economy initiatives. He is involved with a number of overlapping efforts to imagine, organize around, and expand post-capitalist possibility in Massachusetts.  His regular column in the Amherst Indy, Becoming Human, is a series of essays and interviews about efforts in our communities and in other parts of the world that we might learn from. The growing narratives, relations, and power from which other worlds are being assembled, maybe, can help reorient our hope and desire—and resignation—away from the death drive of white supremacist, heteronormative, capitalist modernity, and towards an open, uncharted horizon of radical egalitarianism and towards the reality that other worlds are in the making or already here.
