Historical Materialism Montreal 2018: The Great Transition – May 17-20th 2018

6th Oct 2017

Historical Materialism presents: The Great Transition – Setting the Stage for a Post-Capitalist Society
17-20th May 2018 at Université du Québec à Montréal, Québec, Canada
Organized in collaboration with the Nouveaux cahiers du socialisme, Critical Social Theory at McGill and the Institut de recherche sur l’émancipation.

Deadline: November 15, 2017
To submit a proposal:

After years of revolt and mobilization following the economic crisis of 2008, from Occupy Wall Street to Bernie Sanders, from the Maple Spring through Nuit Debout (and without forgetting the tragic backlash aimed at Syriza) to the complex evolution of the Pink Tide in Latin America and the democratic socialism of Rojava, the domination of the capitalist economy has been questioned on numerous occasions. In order to pass from multiple resistances to a convergent offensive, it seems imperative to elaborate a real project of transition out of capitalism, building on the critical knowledge produced both at the university and in social movements.

For the conference The Great Transition: Setting the Stage for a Post-Capitalist Society we invite everyone to reflect on this question along one of our three general lines of inquiry: critiques of capitalism, anti-capitalist transition strategies and post-capitalist models
