APPEAL is launching a new seminar format reading group which will explore the meaning and nature of capitalism with a focus on political economy and law. Meeting approximately every month, participants will be expected to read material circulated in advance and to be prepared to discuss a series of questions about the readings on topics such as the elements of capitalism; temporal dynamics of capitalism; varieties of capitalism; and capitalism, subjectivity, and inequality. The workshop will be hosted by Professor Jamee Moudud of Sarah Lawrence College, in collaboration with Aleksandar Stojanovic, John Haskell, and Martha McCluskey, with research assistance from Nikos Efstratudakis. We anticipate producing some collaborative writing to capture and develop themes from the discussions.
