DISCOVERING IMPERIALISM

Now Available in Paperback!

Discovering Imperialism: Social Democracy to World War I

AVAILABLE NOW • $50 • ISBN: 978-1-60846-235-3

THOUGH PRIMARILY associated with the most prominent figures in the history of European Marxism, the theory of imperialism was actually developed through lively and engaged debates within the Second International from 1898–1916. This volume assembles and translates for the first time all of the main documents produced over the course of these discussions.

PRAISE FOR DISCOVERING IMPERIALISM

“[T]his is a really excellent book, which is deeply informative about the development of Marxist ideas about imperialism before Lenin’s famous text … [It] should be as widely read on the left as possible. It opens up a vista of a much more complex debate and development than our ‘traditional’ left narratives of the issue allow us to see.”
—Mike Macnair, The Weekly Worker

RICHARD B. DAY is Professor of Political Economy at the University of Toronto, Canada. He has published extensively on Soviet economic and political history, including Leon Trotsky and the Politics of Economic Isolation.

DANIEL F. GAIDO is a researcher at the National Research Council (Conicet) in Argentina. He is the author of The Formative Period of American Capitalism and is currently working on a book on the history of German social democracy.

Theatre of Tragedy

TRAGEDY AS A POLITICAL CATEGORY

Tuesday December 4, 16:00-17:45 | Westminster Forum, 5th Floor, Wells Street 

Dr Alberto Toscano, Goldsmiths, University of London

Alberto Toscano is a cultural critic, social theorist, philosopher and translator best known to the English-speaking world for his translations of the work of Alain Badiou, including Badiou’s The Century and Logics of Worlds. He served as both editor and translator of Badiou’s Theoretical Writings and On Beckett.

Alberto Toscano’s own work has been described both as an investigation of the persistence of the idea of communism in contemporary thought and a genealogical inquiry into the concept of fanaticism. He is the author of The Theatre of Production (2006), and his book Fanaticism: The Uses of an Idea was published in 2010. Toscano has published numerous articles on contemporary philosophy, politics and social theory. In an article on the Tarnac 9 case,written for The Guardian in December 2009, Toscano argues that society is losing its ability to distinguish between vandalism and terrorism.

A senior lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London, Toscano is a member of the editorial board of the journal Historical Materialism: Research in Critical Marxist Theory.

The seminar will be followed by refreshments

Raya Dunayevskaya

THE DUNAYEVSKAYA-MARCUSE-FROMM CORRESPONDENCE, 1954-1978: DIALOGUES ON HEGEL, MARX, FEMINISM, AND CRITICAL THEORY – BOOK LAUNCH (Los Angeles)

Edited by Kevin B. Anderson and Russell Rockwell

Lexington Books, 2012

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2012

6:00-8:00 PM

Peace Center

8124 West Third Street

Los Angeles (near West Hollywood area)

Speakers:

Kevin B. Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins

Ana Maillon, community activist and cultural worker

Kathryn F., student activist

This book presents for the first time the correspondence between the Marxist-Humanist and feminist philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya (1910-87) and two other noted thinkers, the Hegelian Marxist philosopher and social theorist Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979) and the psychologist and social critic Erich Fromm (1900-80), both of the latter members of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. The letters cover topics such as dialectical social theory, Marxist economics, socialist humanism, the structure and contradictions of modern capitalism, the history of Marxism and of the Frankfurt School, feminism and revolution, developments in the USSR, Cuba, and China, and the New Left of the 1960s. Among the thinkers discussed in the correspondence – some of them quite critically– are Rosa Luxemburg, Theodor Adorno, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, V. I. Lenin, Nikolai Bukharin, Leon Trotsky, Mao Zedong, and Daniel Bell. This volume shows the deeply Marxist and humanist concerns of these thinkers, each of whom had a lifelong concern with rethinking Marx and Hegel as the foundation for an analysis of capitalist modernity and its forces of opposition.

Background reading:

K. Anderson, “Marcuse’s and Fromm’s Correspondence with the Socialist Feminist Raya Dunayevskaya: A New Window on Critical Theory,” Logos, Winter 2012  http://logosjournal.com/2012/winter_anderson/

DOCK(ING): OR, NEW ECONOMIES OF EXCHANGE

Banff Research in Culture 2013: Dock(ing); or, New Economies of Exchange (Call for Participants)

Dock(ing); or, New Economies of Exchange

BANFF RESEARCH IN CULTURE 2013

Program dates: May 27-June 14, 2013

Application deadline: January 15, 2013

Application Information can be found here.

 

Banff Research in Culture (BRiC) is a research residency program designed for scholars engaged in advanced theoretical research on themes and topics in culture. BRiC is designed to offer researchers with similar interests from different disciplinary and professional backgrounds an opportunity to exchange opinions and ideas. Participants are encouraged to develop new research, artistic, editorial, and authorial projects, both individually and in connection with others.

During the residency, participants will attend lectures, seminars, and workshops offered by visiting faculty from around the world. The residency will help to develop new approaches toward the study and analysis of culture, as well as creating lasting networks of scholars who might use this opportunity as the basis for future collaborative work.

The Banff Centre is a world-renowned facility supporting the creation and performance of new works of visual art, music, dance, theatre, and writing. The 2013 edition of BRiC is organized in conjunction with the Liverpool Biennial.

BRiC is funded by The Banff Centre, Canada Research Chair in Cultural Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Alberta and the Office of the Vice-President (Research), University of Alberta. In 2013, BRiC is being organized by Imre Szeman, Sally Tallant, Maria Whiteman, and Visual Arts at The Banff Centre. 

 

Dock(ing); or, New Economies of Exchange

Faculty: Joseph GrimaSuzanne LacyMichael Speaks

A dock is the place where the land meets the ocean, where goods arrive from abroad, and where foreigners step onto the surface of the country they are visiting. It is a liminal space of encounters and exchanges, both legal and illegal — a space of furious new activity that can upset the given order, just as often as it confirms it through the smooth operations of legal power and border control. The physical space of the sea wharf is only one of the ways in which ‘dock’ names a necessary yet potentially dangerous threshold. A dock is also the space in a courtroom where prisoners are placed on trial, exposed to the full power of the law. And when used as a verb, ‘dock’ names such varied practices as the punishment of workers by withholding payment for their labour, the removal of an animal’s tail to bend its body into shape in line with human demands and desires, and the connection of different bits of computer hardware to allow for the exchange of information. 

Banff Research in Culture 2013 is organized in partnership with the Liverpool Biennial. For the city of Liverpool, which has undergone a significant period of de-industrialization and de-population, the docks that line its waterfront constitute a reminder of a more prosperous moment in its development. They are also a site of potential urban re-development and re-imagining, with all the promise and hazards that such gentrification and rebuilding bring with them. BRiC 2013 seeks to bring together critical thinkers intent on exploring the politics played out on physical and metaphoric docks, as well as practices of docking in art, culture, design, critical theory, cultural studies, and urban development. The liminal spaces to which docks point include legal, national, physical and conceptual borders of all kinds — spaces and places where power is exerted over identities and collectivities, and so, too, sites where power is actively challenged with the aim of enabling new possibilities for a new century.

The collective interrogation of docks and docking that will take place during BRiC 2013 constitutes a starting point for understanding some of the major social, political and cultural challenges we face at the outset of this new century. Far from being an end in itself, a multifaceted, multidisciplinary investigation of docks promises to open new vantage points on long-standing problems. In the case of the City of Liverpool, for instance, this includes the very real trials involved in re-constituting genuine civic life in the wake of de-industrialization, the role played by art in this process, and the difficulties of creating new urban possibilities and opportunities that do not follow the problematic script of capitalist gentrification.

We look forward to receiving compelling and original project proposals from thinkers and creators working on a wide range of projects.

BOOK LAUNCH – SPEAKING UP:  A HISTORY OF LANGUAGE AND POLITICS IN CANADA AND QUEBEC
7:00pm
Wednesday, December 5th
Gladstone Hotel (upstairs gallery)
1214 Queen St. West, Toronto

Speaking Up presents a wide overview of the history of the relationship between language and politics in Canada and Quebec from 1539 to the present.

A fascinating history of sound and fury, debates and struggles, tensions, but also of appeasement, Speaking Up traces the long history of the language issue. Nuanced and unbiased yet empathetic, it shows that language has been at the heart of this country’s political life for centuries. Speaking Up offers a fresh look at one of the great issues of our time. Translated from the multiple-award-winning Langue et politique au Canada et au Québec (Boréal, 2010).

As part of the book launch Between the Lines will be formally awarded the $10,000 Wilson Prize for Publishing Canadian History “for [our] record of invigorating and broadening the field of Canadian History.”

MADE IN CANADA: HOW THE LAW CONSTRUCTS MIGRANT WORKERS’ INSECURITY

By Fay Faraday, Metcalf Foundation

Canada’s reliance on low-wage migrant workers with temporary immigration status is growing but our laws make them vulnerable to abuse, says a new report written by Fay Faraday, Metcalf Innovation Fellow. Made in Canada: How the Law Constructs Migrant Workers’ Insecurity, shows that low-wage migrant workers are brought into Canada on terms that leave them open to exploitation. The report generated significant media response.

CONVENTIONS OF LABOUR: MOVEMENT OR PARALYSIS?

By Dave Bleakney, Briarpatch Magazine

The status quo is not working for working people. Unions need to seriously overhaul the way they operate if they are to remain relevant. One key example that reveals the directionlessness and impotence of contemporary unions is the perennial convention charade where the organized labour movement convenes with the professed aims of advancing the interests of workers and improving society as a whole. If only this were the case.

INSTEAD OF MORE STUFF, GIVE HOLIDAY GIFTS THAT PROTECT CANADA’S WILDLIFE

The holiday season is quickly approaching – before you know it, we’ll be baking cookies, decking halls, and dreading the endless lines and exhausting crowds of the mall.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Gifts of Canadian Nature symbolize what this amazing organization has accomplished over the last 50 years, coast to coast. From grizzly bear habitat in the west where mountain valleys are bisected by rushing rivers to the boreal forests of the east that house the elusive Canada lynx, these gifts celebrate all that we’ve achieved and all we still can do together.

There’s a price to fit every budget – from $40 to protect an acre of Canadian wilderness to $400 for a very special gift of caribou habitat. Each gift includes a certificate that can be personalized with the recipient’s name and include a full-colour calendar printed in Canada with vegetable-based ink on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper.
