LONDON SEMINAR ON CONTEMPORARY MARXIST THEORY

5th December, 5pm

King’s College London, Strand Campus, S-1.06, Raked Lecture Theatre

Costas Lapavitsas (SOAS)

Financialisation: What is it and how to analyse it?

The global economic and financial crisis has witnessed a deepening of interest in different forms of critical and radical thought and practice. Following successful series in the last two years, the London Seminar on Contemporary Marxist Theory in 2012/13 will continue to explore the new perspectives that have been opened up by Marxist interventions in this political and theoretical conjuncture. It involves collaboration among Marxist scholars based in several London universities, including Brunel University, King’s College London, Queen Mary University of London and the School of Oriental and African Studies. Guest speakers – from both Britain and abroad – will include a wide range of thinkers engaging with many different elements of the various Marxist traditions, as well as with diverse problems and topics. The aim of the seminar is to promote fruitful debate and to contribute to the development of more robust Marxist analysis.

It is open to all.
