Urban Displacements and Contemporary Capitalism

Sat, September 25 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$7 – $11

Susanne Soederberg argues that historical and geographical configurations of monetized governance, including landlords, employers and inter-scalar state practices, have served to reproduce urban displacements and obfuscate their gendered, class and racialized underpinnings. The outcome is the everyday facilitation and normalization of urban poverty and social marginalization on one side, and capital accumulation on the other.

Capital, Book II: The Process of Circulation of Capital

Sat, September 25 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 PM on Saturday, repeating until Sat, December 11, 2021

$70 – $100

We will begin our study of Volume II study by situating this volume in relation to the historical process of development of capitalist society which is premised on its specific social form of societal re-production, the production of capital. To do so we will study the closing sections of the Penguin edition of Volume I, specifically, Part VIII: "So-called Primitive Accumulation" and the “Appendix: Results of the Immediate Process of Production”.

Join us as we journey through this movement from the imaginary concrete to the abstract concrete to the real concrete. Come and challenge your way of thinking and understanding the world as it appears to you and begin to identify some of what needs to be overcome and done to bring about a better world.

Women Write on the Verge of Historical Change

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 PM on Thursday, repeating until Thu, December 16, 2021

$40 – $70

During this term, the MEP Literature Studies Group will read novels by women writers which explore the intersections of life in their communities, both at home and in the metropoles of Europe, India and the Philippines. These stories will take us to places and introduce us to people facing many of the dilemmas posed during late-stage capitalism, when the looming tipping points begin to collide. Reading and discussing these important writers could very well bring us to a broader sense of time and place.
