Join us for a symposium on the theme of Capitalism’s bodies, with speakers Rose-Anne Gush, Gill Park and Tom Hastings, followed by our reading group looking at Vladimir Lenin’s Materialism & Empirio-Criticism.
Venue: Seminar Room 2.08, Baines Wing
Symposium: Capitalism’s Bodies
Speakers: Rose-Anne Gush, Gill Park, Tom Hastings, Claire Hope
This session focuses on what David Harvey has phrased as a return to ‘the body’ as ‘the measure of all things’, with a focus on the way in which the body in post-war art has raised questions of gender and sexuality under capitalism.
Materialism & Empirio-Criticism, Vladimir Lenin
See here for Reading Group information.
The Critical researches into capitalism, its cultures, histories… research group aims to bring together historical, historiographical and theoretical perspectives, with an eye not only to the social formation classically known as ‘capitalism’, but also to its prehistories and its possible ‘post-histories’; to questions of value, capital, processes of capital subsumption; the interdependencies of capital and colonialism; the reshaping of spatial and temporal experience. The question of ‘materialism’ is addressed directly through our reading group.
We invite those who wish to join us in this collective endeavour to contact Gail Day at email@example.com.
