HISTORICAL MATERIALISM TORONTO CONFERENCE – REGISTRATION
Confronting Crisis: Left Praxis in the Face of Austerity, War and Revolution
Historical Materialism Conference
York University, Toronto, Canada
May 8 – 11th, 2014
Registration Now Open
Confronted with a global context of austerity, exploitation, imperialist aggression, ongoing colonialism, and ecological crises, the world has been witness to growing social and political struggles over the past decade. A wide range of rural- and urban-based labour and social movements have fought back against the current ‘Age of Austerity,’ while new modes and geographies of resistance against dispossession and tyranny continue to inspire social change in the Global South. Against this backdrop, the 2014 Historical Materialism conference at Toronto’s York University will aim to contribute to a collective discussion on how to extend and revitalize Left critique and praxis in the current conjuncture.
Confirmed speakers for the conference include:
Haroon Akram-Lodhi, Farshad Araghi, David Austin, Himani Bannerji, Tithi Bhattacharya, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Peter Kulchyski, Jason Moore, Richard Seymour, Panagiotis Sotiris, Lise Vogel, and Judith Whitehead.
