Blood and Money

Mon, March 8 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 PM on Monday, repeating until Mon, March 29, 2021

$60 – $90

The birth and development of capitalism since its origins in the fifteenth century is entirely bound up with the subordination of racialized peoples. Even before capitalism arose – in a process Marx termed the “so-called primitive accumulation” – money and markets were implicated in the rise and fall of states and empires that conquered and enslaved vast numbers of human bodies. This group will address these histories and their persisting consequences. We will read and discuss David McNally’s Blood and Money: War, Slavery, Finance, and Empire and Jairus Banaji’s The History of Commercial Capitalism among other works.

The Last Years of Karl Marx: A new reading group

Mon, March 8 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 PM on Monday, repeating until Mon, March 29, 2021

$15 – $55

With The Last Years of Karl Marx, Marcello Musto claims a renewed relevance for the late work of Marx, highlighting unpublished or previously neglected writings, many of which remain unavailable in English. Readers are invited to reconsider Marx’s critique of European colonialism, his ideas on non-Western societies, and his theories on the possibility of revolution in non-capitalist countries. From Marx’s late manuscripts, notebooks, and letters emerge an author markedly different from the one represented by many of his contemporary critics and followers alike.

The Big Tech Monopolies and the State with Grace Blakeley

Sun, March 14 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$7 – $11

As the effects of the coronavirus pandemic swept through the global economy, the average observer could have been forgiven for missing a critical piece of news: by May 2020, the combined market capitalization of the four largest US tech companies reached one fifth of the entire S&P 500. Four companies – Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook – now account for 20 per cent of the combined value of the 500 largest US corporations – an unparalleled level of market concentration. Forty years these corporate entitites were either just beyond being plucky start-ups, or did not even exist.

Black Reconstruction in America by W.E.B. Du Bois

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, repeating until Tue, June 22, 2021

$85 – $115

Black Reconstruction provides a basis for a much overdue revolution in US labor history. As Du Bois so eloquently and bluntly put in in 1935: “The South, after the war, presented the greatest opportunity for a real national labor movement which the nation ever saw or is likely to see again for many decades. Yet, the labor movement, with but few exceptions, never realized the situation. It never had the intelligence or knowledge, as a whole, to see in black slavery and Reconstruction, the kernel and meaning of the labor movement in the United States.”
