The Jumping Point of Political Economy: Capital Against Labor and Nature
On the crisis dynamics in times of the Capitalocene. Symposium in honour of Elmar Altvater (24.8.1938 - 1.5.2018).
Elmar Altvater was one of the most important critical social scientists and one of the most important left-wing intellectuals in the Federal Republic of Germany. After his death on 1 May of this year, numerous obituaries appeared; here we refer only to the one written by Alex Demirović, the chairman of the scientific advisory board of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation. The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, together with Prof. Dr. Birgit Mahnkopf (Institute for International Political Economy - IPE, Berlin), is organising a symposium in honour of Elmar Altvater on 14 and 15 December 2018. The symposium will take place partly in German and partly in English without translation. Please register your participation by 5 December.
