Speculations, Spectacles, Spectres
For a structural analysis of financialization and against the use of “fascism” as a scare tactic
Psychoanalytic resources for (anti-) fascist mobilization
Past, Present and Future of Financialization
What do the worlds of global finance and nationalist populism have in common? How can we understand the rise of today’s ‘new fascisms’ through the prism of financialization? This one-day workshop brought together scholars from across disciplines to debate these key questions for our understanding of contemporary capitalism. The workshop took place on February 21st 2019; it was part of Public Seminar’s Imaginal Politics initiative and was organised jointly with the Department of Social Science, University College London. It included three panel discussions and a closing plenary talk by Judith Butler.
