Updated info (including location) for the Molinari Society panel tomorrow:

Emma Goldman and Voltairine de Cleyre

Eastern APA, Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Friday, 28 December:

Molinari Society, 2:00-5:00 p.m. [GIV-3, room L406 (lobby level, past the fitness center; see map]:
Explorations in Philosophical Anarchy

presenters:
Matthew Quest (Independent Scholar), “Between Insurrection and Popular Self-Management: Emma Goldman and the Self-Governing Will”
Roderick T. Long (Auburn University), “Transformation or Abolition: Marriage and the Family in the Individualist Anarchist Tradition”

commentators:
Nina Brewer-Davis (Auburn University)
Charles Johnson (Molinari Institute)

Frustratingly, they’ve scheduled our session opposite a session that includes both a paper on C. L. R. James (one of Matthew’s main research interests) and a paper on the abolition of marriage. Les choses sont contre nous.

P.S. – If my online presence has been scant lately, it’s because my home internet connection is on the fritz. That’ll be corrected next year (i.e., next week).

Molinari Beach Safari

I’ve been back for nearly a week from the Liberty Fund I organised (my first time as director!) in La Jolla on Gustave de Molinari, but have been too busy with final exams and other end-of-term stuff to mention it here. Anyway, it was terrific: interesting readings, beautiful location, and some of my favourite people.

Five members of the Molinari Institute and/or Center for a Stateless Society were present. Here they are:

Sheldon Richman, Gary Chartier, Charles Johnson, Roderick Long, Jennifer McKitrick

The same people as before, silly

More pics from the conference and trip will be posted in due course.
