Watch Capital.150 Conference Online

Posted on 16/10/2017

Marx Capitalism

The Department of European and International Studies (School of Politics & Economics, King's College London), along with the www.thenextrecession.wordpress.com blog, organised a major international conference to mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of Karl Marx’s text Capital: A Critique of Political Economy. The Capital.150: Marx’s 'Capital' Today  conference took place on 19-20 September, 2017. 

It attracted from around the world some of the leading scholars and research networks in the field. There were lively debates among speakers and audience on the roots of the global economic and financial crisis, contemporary imperialism, and the prospects of global capitalism. David Harvey and Michael Roberts debated how to map the terrain of anti-capitalist struggles in the plenary of the evening of September 19. The same topic re-emerged throughout the conference as participants investigated the nature of the present political conjuncture and the prospects for the labour movement.

All the sessions are available to watch on YouTube at the links below:
