  1. Louis Althusser and Materialist Reading

    This seminar provides an opportunity to review contemporary critical studies inspired by the philosophy and theory of Louis Althusser ———————————————————————————————————

    This seminar comprises three papers:

    1. Alya Ansari, In Excess of The Text: The Logics of Capital and Literary Form

    Literary attempts to represent production and surplus-value inevitably grapple with the fundamental difficulty of typifying the mechanisms of an exploitative economic system that always presents an image distinct from its actual operation, appearing in a partial and concealed way. These literary representations of production and surplus-value are autographic—that is, their representation is mimetic, and inevitably so given the considerable rift between capital’s representation and its reality—but rarely allographic, rarely moving the reader to animate the revolutionary idea. This essay elaborates Althusser’s conception of “symptomatic reading” in order to demystify the literary archform that forecloses adequate knowledge of capital’s governing logics within the literary mode of production.

    1. T. L. McGlone, Décalage as Subterranean Concept in Reading Capital

    In Reading Capital, Louis Althusser and his students generated a series of concepts which now possess some renown in Marxist circles: overdetermination, struc…

  2. Prof. Quinn Slobodian - The Past and Future of Economic Globalism

    With the outbreak of the pandemic, neoliberal globalism seems to have lost another of its nine lives. What remains of the consensus around global economic governance that seemed so solid from the fall of the Berlin Wall until a few years ago? This talk will recount the history of the twentieth century that led to the naturalization of globalization in the long 1990s and consider the challenges we can expect from attempts to roll out progressive politics to address inequality and climate change from the top down in coming years.

    Since 2015, Prof. Dr. Quinn Slobodian is Associate Professor of History with a focus on modern European History and Germany at Wellesley College, USA. In 2013-2014, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Freie Universität Berlin. As a Visiting Scholar he was at Harvard University (2011), the University of Bologna (2015) and the University of Hong Kong (2017). As a ACLS Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellow he was again at Harvard University in 2017/18. In 2018, Harvard University Press published his book "Globalists. The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism" and in 2020 Verso published "Nine Lives of Neoliberalism," which he co-edited with Dieter Plehwe and Philip Mirowski. In addition to numerous other scholarly publications, Slobodian writes regularly for The Guardian, Th…

  3. Revaluing Care in the Global Economy: Post-Work Imaginaries

    In a society that promotes relentless performance and at the same time undervalues “essential” labor, while imposing a 24/7 working time, this panel set out to explore what are the alternatives. From self-design in the era of automation to universal basic income (UBI) to the resistance of indigenous communities, the panelists looked for concrete utopias beyond or within work ethics and capitalism.

    Heather Berg, Assistant Professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Washington University in St. Louis Arturo Escobar, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Helen Hester, Associate Professor of Gender, Technology and Cultural Politics, University of West London Melanie Yazzie, Assistant Professor of Native American Studies and American Studies, University of New Mexico Moderated by Tania Rispoli, PhD candidate in Romance Studies, Duke University and Jocelyn Olcott, Professor of History, International Comparative Studies, and Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies, Duke University

    Sponsored by the Revaluing Care in the Global Economy Lab at Duke University

    Recorded December 2, 2021.

  5. Book-launch of Keti Chukhrov’s Practicing the Good. Desire and Boredom in Soviet Socialism/6.05.2021

    With Boris Groys, Vijay Prashad, Angela Dimitrakaki, Samo Tomsic, Chair: Michal Murawski. "Practicing the Good. Desire and Boredom in Soviet Socialism" (University of Minnesota Press, e-flux, 2020), a philosophical consideration of Soviet socialism, is not meant simply to revisit the communist past. In its four parts—Political Economy, Sexuality, Aesthetics, and Philosophy—the book unravels the epistemes generated by socialist society and political economy and witnesses the extent to which certain zones where capitalism’s domination is resisted—the zones of anti-capitalist critique in continental thought since the 1960s, institutions of civil society and present theoretical provisions of emancipation—are in fact permeated by unconscious capitalism and thus unwittingly affirm the capitalist condition.

    The research is marked by cross-disciplinary approach based on political economy, philosophy, psychoanalysis and art theory that redefines old Cold War and Slavic studies’ views of the post-Stalinist years, as well as challenges the interpretations of this period of historical socialism in Western Marxist thought.

    This event is organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies at UCL, in collaboration with PPV (Perverting the Power Vertical: Politics and Aesthetics in the Global East), an art and research…

  6. Zer0 Books Archives - ‘The Productive Body’ with Philip Barnard and Stephen Shapiro

    On this episode of Zer0 Books Archives, Will and Craig of Acid Horizon are joined by Stephen Shapiro and Philip Barnard to discuss their translation of Guery’s and Deluele’s The Productive Body. The Productive Body was a remarkably influential text that was foundational to Foucault’s treatment of the body in works such as Discipline and Punish. Yet, it remained relatively unknown in the anglophone world. This book attempts to unpack Marx’s conception of the division of labor, large-scale industry, and cooperation with the goal showing how capitalist production breaks down the body and reformulates it, producing something new and essential – the productive body.
