Theory & Practice

program date: 
Mon, 06/01/2015
Tod Sloan talks with Lara Messersmith-Glavin of the Institute for Anarchist Studies about theory and practice. They consider how theory helps illuminate individually lived experiences as part of larger systems, while also stressing the priority of lived experience in generating our theories. She provides examples of how theory has helped make her everyday life as a working-class mother make more sense, bringing her a degree of control and context, and over all increasing her resilience as a person. She also describes how the experience of queer women of color informed several "correctives" to some of the one-demensional concerns of white feminists.

Wed, 05/27/2015
Richard Rothstein is a research associate with the Economic Policy Institute.  He has written extensively on the effect of inequitable education on black and minority children in the US.  His latest piece for the EPI, focuses on the complicity of the Federal government in creating policies that supported discrimination of blacks at every level of society in Ferguson, Missouri and how those policies are rampant not only in Ferguson but across the country.  Don Merrill talks with Mr. Rothstein about the period of time when discriminatory policies became embedded in our cities, why blacks have gotten the worst of it and why a data intensive investigation of the problem doesn't equal the political will to solve it.
