Speaker Series on Capital as Power (October-November, 2015)
November 17, 2015
Organized by the Forum on Capital as Power and sponsored by the York Department of Political Science and Graduate Program in Social and Political Thought (open to all, with refreshments)
Existing theories of capitalism, mainstream as well as heterodox, view capitalism as a mode of production and consumption. This speaker series interrogates capitalism as a mode of power. The five presentations deal with the past, present and future of the CasP project (Bichler & Nitzan), the historical connection between economic growth and the formation of social hierarchy (Fix), the role of blockbuster cinema in reducing Hollywood’s risk (McMahon), the external-internal power dynamics of the U.S. public debt (Hager), and General Electric’s staying power and what can be learned from it for the study of capital accumulation (Cochrane).
The speaker series is organized by the Forum on Capital as Power and sponsored by the York Department of Political Science and Graduate Program in SPT.

DATES: October 20, 27; November 3, 10, 17, 2015
