The Conference of Socialist Economists (CSE) http://www.cseweb.org.uk/ is an international, democratic membership organisation committed to developing a materialist critique of capitalism, unconstrained by conventional academic divisions between subjects. CSE has organised and supported conferences and seminars and publishes the Sage journal Capital & Class http://cnc.sagepub.com/ three times a year.

The CSE South Group is a new network of researchers and activists mirroring the CSE Transpennine Group which runs across the north of Britain initiated by Capital and Class Editorial Board members Stuart Shields and Greig Charnock. We will be organising workshops where people present work and hold discussions on topics that concern the CSE and our journal.

The CSE South Group will hold a launch event on Friday the 25th October at MiddlesexUniversity. Our speakers will be Professor Martin Upchurch, who will present ‘Towards the New Workplace Dystopia’; Dr Owen Worth, Managing Editor for Capital & Class, who will speak about ‘The Crisis of Capital’ and Dr Phoebe Moore, Editorial Board member for Capital & Class and convenor for the CSE South Group who will speak about ‘Cognitive Capitalism and the Quantified Worker’.

We will also hold a Roundtable called ‘Contemporary Conditions of Capital’ where we will discuss and debate issues in contemporary conditions of capital including mental health and work, global production networks, commodification of education, safety at work, migration and much more. Speakers on the roundtable will include Peter Hough, author of ‘Valuing Culture by Ignoring it: Relativism and Human Rights’ and ‘Who’s Securing Whom? The need for International Relations to Embrace Human Security’; Elizabeth Cotton who has written Global Unions Global Business (with Richard Croucher) and initiator of: http://survivingwork.org/ ; and Clive Boddy, author of Corporate Psychopaths: Organisational Destroyers.

If you come along you will have the chance to meet individuals on the Capital & Class Editorial Board and a wide range of other researchers and activists.

This will be the first of many workshops run by the CSE South Group. These events will encourage networking across activists, trade unionists, newer researchers and the established cadre who can learn from one another, think together and act in solidarity toward a transformed world.

Critique

CRITICAL INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL ECONOMY

Dear All

Claes Belfrage and Owen Worth have the pleasure of announcing the publication of a special issue on “Critical International Political Economy: Renewing Critique and Ontologies” in International Politics as volume 49, Issue 2 (March 2012). 

The special issue contains contributions by Owen Worth, Claes Belfrage, Ian Bruff, Jill Steans & Daniela Tepe, Phoebe Moore, Nana Rodaki, Kyle Murray and David M. Berry. It endeavours to renew critique in IPE by engaging with the work of Rosa Luxemburg (Worth) and the notion of aesthetics andFrankfurtSchool theory (Belfrage).

It seeks to highlight the relevance of Nicos Poulantzas for contemporary debates on ‘the international’ (Bruff), the significance of the global and gendered dimensions of citizenship, community and ‘cohesion’ (Steans & Tepe), and the absence of “work” in critical IPE (Moore).

It attempts to renew the tradition by considering “the city” (Rodaki), the role of Christian ‘renewalism’ in the production of global free market hegemony (Murray) and the relevance of understanding code to international political economy (Berry).

We hope you engage with the special issue and that it will serve the purpose of renewing critique and ontologies in Critical IPE in particular and IPE as a whole more generally.

All the best
Claes and Owen
