It's that time of year again. Now in its 18th annual incarnation, the BASTARD (Berkeley Students of Anarchist Theory and Research & Development) Conference is a nonsectarian, noncommercial gathering of insurgents who come together to explore and share our unique approaches to anarchy, our selves, and our worlds. We invite you to add your voice to the conversation.
Airs on WSFM-LP 103.3 in Asheville / streaming at AshevilleFM from 3am EST on July 25th, 2016, through July 31st, then podcasting at radio4all.net.

What is nihilism? What is hope? Can one have both? Are they sentiments? Systems of belief? Realities? Are they the same reality? This conference will grapple with the concepts of ‘nihilism’ and ‘hope’ as two fundamentally inseparable ideas—in contrast to the notion of these two terms being diametrically opposite and/or mutually exclusive, as they are sometimes understood.
