HYBRID: Chaos Theory and Culture Jamming

This class will explore San Francisco in three Eras: starting in the Gilded Age, continuing through the Counterculture Era, and ending with a Modern focus.

Description

This class will be offered both in person at the Wicked Grounds Annex in San Francisco, and simultaneously as a live, online class offered through Zoom. Please select SF or online tickets when purchasing.

How did Emperor Norton inspire early internet engineers, writers, and playboy editors to found a religion? How did this conspiracy of Counter Culture writers and Chaos magicians reanimate the Illuminati? What is culture jamming and how did its influence on early hacker culture shape our current political affairs? All these questions will be answered in this unique seminar on Norton, Discordianism, conspiracy theories, and practical jokes as political activism.

This class will explore San Francisco in three Eras: starting in the Gilded Age, continuing through the Counterculture Era, and ending with a Modern focus. We will also be exploring fascist metapolitics, their claims of using meme magic, and offers a praxis informed by far-right vulnerabilities to resist their oppression.

Finally, the course will demonstrate a means by which Culture Jamming can help you find and be your favorite self. Whether a student of counterculture or an enthusiast for San Francisco's influence on American thought, this class is sure to enlighten and/or confuse. Now with updated and new material.

We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.

The regular ticket is $25. This is what most people should pay.

The $15 ticket is offered for those for whom the $25 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $25 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $15.

Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $35 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it. :)

If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.

So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.
