Four Futures: Life After Capitalism
7 p.m. Monday, April 24, 2017
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 “an 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.
