San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The MA in Global Urban Justice (GUJ) at the School of Geography University of Leeds is organising a workshop with John Holloway, Professor of Sociology at the Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y humanidades in the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, Mexico.
The workshop will start with a presentation of John’s latest thinking around Hope and Crisis and later there will be an opportunity for participants to discuss their own experiences and interpretations. The workshop is aimed at postgraduate students, researchers and/ or activists working on issues of social justice and social movements.
John Holloway has published widely on Marxist theory, on the Zapatista movement and on the new forms of anti-capitalist struggle. His book ‘Change the World Without Taking Power’ (Pluto, London, 2002, new edition 2010) has been translated into eleven languages and has stirred an international debate. His more recent book, ‘Crack Capitalism’ (Pluto, 2010), takes the argument further by suggesting that the only way in which we can think of revolution today is as the creation, expansion, multiplication and confluence of cracks in capitalist domination.
