3566 - Capitalism and Its Crises: Economic, Political, Ecological

Mon, August 13, 4:30 to 6:10pm, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Floor: Level 4, Franklin Hall 2

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


In the past several decades, a new phase of rapidly globalizing capitalism has culminated in forms of economic, political and ecological crises. These are rapidly reaching critical points, with global and intersecting implications. In this session, participants will offer analyses of contemporary capitalism's ensuing crises; these will range from the examination of authoritarian politics and its corresponding forms of subjectivity and psyche, to the investigation of policies geared toward the concentration of wealth, the exploitation of the environment, and global ecology—policies that are bearing out catastrophic consequences.
