You are invited to participate!
NAASN is a network engaged with the production of knowledge both within and without institutional walls. We are particularly interested in including marginalised voices and perspectives, and encourage the breaking down of barriers between disciplines as well as between the academic and non-academic or even Anti-academic. From the streets to the lectern, we encourage all those interested in the praxis of anarchism or anarchists to attend this conference.
We presently have 30 speakers giving talk or workshops over three days. Topics include philosophy, political theory, psychology, musicology, gender, sexuality, philosophy, history and more.
NAASN 2018 will take place on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The Kanien’kehá:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. In the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, Tiohtià:ke is the name of the island later dubbed "Montreal", a site which has long been a meeting place for other Indigenous peoples, including the Algonquin.
