  5. Value, Capitalism, and Communism | Red May 2021

    What is the relationship between Marx’s theory of value and communism? Drawing upon thinkers such as Amadeo Bordiga and Gilles Dauvé, for whom "the whole of Marx’s work was a description of communism," Jasper Bernes has proposed a new way of understanding the tasks of communism in practice and in theory. In Marx, and in the few thinkers who have attempted to apply his thought directly to the practical task of communism, we can find a "test of communism," a logical model of the necessary conditions for communism, which implies an adequate concept of capitalism. The panel will bring together new research on the theory of value, the theory of the state, and the history of the communist movement, in order to begin a wider discussion about the prospects for communism in the twenty-first century.

    Jasper Bernes, Cordelia Belton. Kailash Srinivasan

  7. Fighting For Their Own Servitude | Red May 2021

    From Spinoza’s Theological Political Treatise to Wilhelm Reich’s Mass Psychology of Fascism to Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus, one of the most fundamental and most disturbing questions of politics has been: why do people fight for their servitude as if it were their salvation? The strange thing isn’t that some people steal or occasionally go on strike, but that hungry people don’t always steal, and workers aren’t always on strike. This question has always had to address the existence of something like the "far right": from monarchist tyranny to fascism to "democratic" authoritarianism. Today as the left debates the utility of the word "fascism," the staying power of Trumpism, the meaning of right-wing populism, join us for an open-ended discussion on what it means for people to fight for their own servitude.

  8. Critical Theory in the 21st Century | Red May 2021

    “The Sage Handbook of Frankfurt School Critical Theory,” writes Massimiliano Tomba,”is and will be essential for anyone who wants to approach, study in depth and orientate oneself in that which falls under the name of critical theory… Extending the basis of the foundation of critical theory to include thinkers such as Bloch, Benjamin, Lukács, Kracauer, Sohn-Rethel, and others, (the authors) give us more of an image of a large bush than that of a tree whose roots are planted in the city of Frankfurt alone. In this way, critical theory is de-provincialized, meeting Bolívar Echeverría and Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez; and it branches out further in its encounter with contemporary social and political movements and theories, including feminism and gendered dynamics of social reproduction. Through the voices of these great volumes, critical theory acquires new vitality from its dialogue with other traditions and critical discourses of capitalist modernity.” A conversation between two of the editors of The Handbook (Chris and Werner) and two of the contributors to it (Amy and Christian).

  9. The Asset Economy and the Logic of Speculation | Red May 2021

    What exactly are the economic shifts that have driven the social transformations taking place in Anglo-capitalist societies? Lisa Adkins and Martijn Konings argue that growing inequality is a product of the rise of an ‘asset economy’. Decades of property inflation have seen asset ownership overshadow employment as a determinant of class position. In their new book, The Asset Economy, co-authored with Melinda Cooper, they explore the harmful effects of the Fed’s policy of Quantitative Easing and similar asset-supporting measures on a range of phenomena that are widely debated but often poorly understood: redistributions of wealth, precarity, the dynamics of land use, changes in fiscal and monetary policy, the dilemmas of “millennials”, and the rise of a speculative imperative as a social logic—a demand that one speculate merely to keep from falling further down the social ladder. Despite widespread awareness of the harmful effects of Quantitative Easing, we appear to have entered an era of policy “lock-in” that is responsible for a volatile disconnect between popular expectations and institutional priorities. Steven Shaviro joins the conversation
