CANCELLED – Nov 20 – Gopal Balakrishnan: “The Historical World of Karl Marx”
Due to the AFSCME systemwide strike and UAW local academic student employee sympathy strike scheduled for November 20th, this event has been cancelled. We are in the midst of rescheduling Professor Balakrishnan’s talk for later this academic year.
Following on his earlier work on Adam Smith and David Ricardo, Gopal Balakrishnan’s current work on Marx seeks to demonstrate the logical unity of Marx’s mature economic thought, while recognizing its specifically 19th century assumptions, as well as its incompleteness as an account of the history of capitalism.
Gopal Balakrishnan is Associate Professor of History of Consciousness at UC/Sana Cruz. He is also an Editorial Board Member of New Left Review.
