Midday Seminar Week 1 - Class and Race in Capitalism

This seminar will examine the question of how class, race, and their relation should be conceived in the era of capitalism, as well as the function of racism in sustaining capitalism, while addressing the enduring pertinence of Marx’s work in theorizing these questions. Individual sections will also focus on specific cases of racialization: of the Irish, of Southern Italians, and of Blacks in the USA.
