Panel Discussion: Returning to Basics — Critique and Crisis

Description:  Please join us for a round table discussion on the critique of political economy in light of contemporary economic, social, and political crises.  We’ll be using Postone’s re-reading of Marx as a point of departure for this discussion and will examine recent crisis-ridden developments in light of that critique.

Panelists include:

Ann E. Davis, Associate Professor of Economics, Marist College;
Don Goldstein, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Allegheny College;
Robert Meister, Professor of Social and Political Thought, University of California, Santa Cruz;
Kaushik Sunder Rajan, Associate Professor of Anthropology, UChicago
Moishe Postone, Professor of Modern History, UChicago.

Chaired by: William Sewell, Professor Emeritus of History and Political Science, UChicago
