This event will feature an interview with John about his most recent book Between Earth and Empire: From the Necrocene to the Beloved Community (PM Press 2019).
John is a native of the Island of New Orleans, where his family has lived for twelve generations, and where he and his children and grandchildren continue to reside. He is director of La Terre Institute for Community and Ecology and Professor Emeritus at Loyola University, where he taught philosophy and environmental studies for many years.
His books include Max Stirner’s Egoism, The Philosophical Anarchism of William Godwin, The Anarchist Moment, Anarchy, Geography, Modernity, The Impossible Community, The Tragedy of Common Sense, Between Earth and Empire, and (as Max Cafard) The Surregionalist Manifesto and Other Writings, FLOOD BOOK, Surregional Explorations, and Lightning Storm Mind, in addition to various edited works and translations.
His interests include dialectical thought, ecological philosophy, environmental ethics, anarchist and libertarian theory, the social imaginary, the critique of domination, Buddhist and Daoist philosophy, theory of social transformation, and the crisis of the Earth. An archive of over three hundred and fifty of his texts can be found at http://loyno.academia.edu/JohnClark.
He has long been active in the radical ecology and communitarian anarchist movements. His recent work has focused on ecological resistance work with No Bayou Bridge, No New Leases, 350 NOLA and other grassroots organizations. His work with La Terre Institute includes educational and organizational programs in New Orleans and on an 88-acre site on Bayou La Terre, in the coastal forest of the Gulf of Mexico. He is a member of the Education Workers’ Union of the Industrial Workers of the World.
He is also the co-sponsor of Yes We Cannibal’s Anarchist Political Ecology (APE) Group and among our most beloved mentors.
Without him, Yes We Cannibal would not exist.
