Jodi Dean – The Communist Horizon
Public Lecture – Open to all. No registration
Thursday 19th May, 6.30pm, Room B34, Birkbeck Main Building

The antagonism that cuts across capitalist countries is increasingly apparent. Dominant ideological forces can’t obscure it. So they name it and they name it communism. The communist horizon is our horizon.

Jodi Dean is Professor of Political Science at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY. She has authored or edited ten books, including, most recently, ‘Democracy and other Neoliberal Fantasies’ (Duke 2009) and “Blog Theory’ (Polity 2010). She is the co-editor of Theory & Event.
