Radical Syllabus

FURIE is committed to making the radical works we read for our Literary Salons as accessible as possible, so we provide free PDF copies of each of them as an educational resource. 

 

Whether you've attended in the past and want to review, or are looking to get an idea of the types of works we read, or are just getting into politics and want some reading material, this archive is a great starting point.  We are still building it, so keep checking back as we update!

Note: Many of these works are copyrighted and are to be used purely for educational purposes, not for financial gain.

Corregidora Pt 1FURIE Literary Salon

Audio recording from FURIE's first ever International Online Literary Salon. 

The original recording was a video chat, and the audio is fairly unedited, so we appreciate your patience as we figured out our logistics while discussing. Unfortunately, due to connection issues, we lost some audio at the end, but there is still plenty of good discussion to be heard.
