Marina Sitrin on Pandemic Solidarity with Colectiva Sembrar

Sat, January 23 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
$7 – $25

Pandemic Solidarity collects first-hand experiences of people creating their own narratives of solidarity and mutual aid in the time of the global crisis of COVID-19. In times of crisis institutions of power are laid bare and people turn to one another. Underneath the media’s narrative of selfish individualism and runs on supermarkets, we find an opposing story of community and self-sacrifice.

Blood and Money

Mon, January 25 @ 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 78 tickets left

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 Brutish Museums: The Benin Bronzes, Colonial Violence and Cultural Restitution

Tue, February 16 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
$7 – $32

The story of the Benin Bronzes — carried off by the British in 1897 — sits at the heart of a heated debate about cultural restitution, repatriation and the decolonization of museums. In “The Brutish Museums”, Dan Hicks makes a powerful case for the urgent return of such objects, as part of a wider project of addressing the outstanding debt of colonialism.

The Sinking Middle Class with David Roediger

Wed, February 17 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
$7 – $11

Roediger demonstrates that an obsession with a “middle class” is relatively new in US politics, starting with Bill Clinton's attempt to win back the so-called Reagan Democrats. The efforts by the corporatist wing of the Democratic Party remain marked by covert appeals to white racism and the avoidance of wealth redistribution.

Empire’s Endgame: Pluto FireWorks series book + talk special

Sun, March 7 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
$25 – $31 38 tickets left

Bringing to the fore broad political and economic contexts, the authors trace ways in which empire’s legacies have been reshaped by global capitalism, the digital environment and instability in the nation-state. Engaging with Black Lives Matter and Rhodes Must Fall movements, Empire's Endgame offers an original perspective on race, media, the state and criminalisation, and a political vision that includes — rather than expels — in the face of crisis.
