The First Meeting of the Agit-Prop Committee's new Subcommittee will be a discussion of:
Socialism and Popular Culture:
a discussion of Stuart Hall's "Notes On Deconstructing the Popular"
What is "popular culture" and how should socialists approach it? Is it simply a product of capitalism, and therefore beyond redemption, or does it also have potential for mass expression on the part of working and oppressed people? Come to the first meeting of the Art & Socialism Study Group (a project of DSA-LA's Agit-Prop Committee) where we'll be asking these questions and discussing Stuart Hall's "Notes on Deconstructing the Popular" to help us better understand art, culture, and their role in the struggle for socialism.
