Capitalism Discussion with Nancy Fraser

Wed, March 13, 2019 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

$6 – $16

Join us for a conversation with Nancy Fraser, co-author with Rahel Jaeggi of Capitalism: A Conversation in Critical Theory. Fraser and Jaeggi show how capitalism relies on critical “background conditions” – institutional separations between economy and polity, production and social reproduction, and human and non-human nature. Capitalist crises periodically readjust the dividing lines among these domains. Such “boundary struggles” offer a key to understanding capitalism’s contradictions and the multiple forms of conflict to which it gives rise. This multidimensional critique of capitalism puts our present conjuncture into broader perspective, enabling diagnoses of the recent resurgence of right-wing populism and suggesting what is required of a viable Left alternative.s

Nancy Fraser is Henry A. and Louise Loeb Professor of Philosophy and Politics at the New School for Social Research. Her many books include Fortunes of Feminism, Redistribution or Recognition?, and Justice Interruptus.

Tickets are sliding scale. No one is denied admission for inability to pay.
