TWT Festival School: What is Capitalism? Class Three: Dispossession

Date
Tue 24.09.19
Timings
3pm – 4:30pm

What is capitalism? Does capitalism change in different historical and geographical contexts? Do we experience capitalism in the same ways? How do our criticisms of capitalism shape our political perspectives? These study sessions will explore such questions by introducing participants to critical theories and histories of capitalism.

Stories of capitalism often centre on market exchanges, whether characterised as unequal or fair, exploitative or free. But what role does violence, theft and plunder play in the making and reproduction of capitalist relations? In Class Three of ‘What is Capitalism?’ we explore histories and theories of dispossession as a defining characteristic of capitalism.

Suggested Reading:

Glen Sean Coulthard, Red Skin White Masks, pp. 6-15
