Peter Frase, Jacobin magazine, imagines how a post-capitalist world might look. Deploying the tools of both social science and speculative fiction, he will explore what communism, rentism, socialism, and exterminism might actually entail.​

His free, public talk, Four Futures: Life After Capitalism, will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, April 24, 2017, in Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center, Room 101.

Frase's book of the same name has been described as β€œan exhilarating exploration into the utopias and dystopias that could develop from present society.”

Peter Frase is a writer and editor at Jacobin magazine, and Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center.

Frase's talk is sponsored by the Institute for Global Engagement; the Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations, and Human Rights; the Center for the Humanities, Peace and Conflict Studies; American studies; and the Departments of Sociology and Philosophy.
