Historical Materialism Sydney: Contesting the Survival of Capitalism

13 December 2018

Capitalism has been able to attenuate but not resolve the contradictions of capital, doing so by occupying and producing space, extending urbanism, programming consumption, expanding the frontiers of primitive accumulation, and sustaining the reproduction of the relations of production. This is not an inexorable process; nor are its participant-witnesses ignorant of the continued constitution and presence of spaces of non-capitalism.

Yet within considerations of the survival of capitalism there has been less focus granted towards the social reproduction of the relations of production comprising gendered, racialised, ecological, decolonial and class hierarchies.

Featuring keynote addresses from  Lisa Adkins, Andreas Bieler and Melinda Cooper, Historical Materialism Sydney 2018 will present panels and individual papers dealing with historical materialist thought from critical sociology and geography; heterodox economics and the critique of political economy; cultural, literary and aesthetic theory; political science and theory; history and historiography; philosophy; law; science studies and any other relevant discipline.

All conference information including registration, venue and program details will be available at hmsydney.net as it becomes available.
