This two-day workshop aims to bring together interested interdisciplinary scholars and thinkers who want to explore the historical and contemporary links between the financialization and colonialism at the intersection of social and cultural criticism and political economy. Our aim is to assemble a convivial and collaborative group to work through these and other, related questions. As such, we have opted to eschew the conventional academic conference format in the hopes of facilitating a more dialogic, generative and convivial atmosphere among people from many backgrounds. Anchored by discussions between invited speakers, the workshop will offer interested artists, activists and researchers a chance to get to know one another’s work through open conversations and workshops.

By registering for tickets you can attend across both days, we offer two streams or methods of participation:

  1. We encourage those who are working on akin projects who want to be more involved in the proceedings to fill in this form with their contact details and a short description of their research/activities. This information will be used to create interest clusters and break-out discussion groups over the two days of the conference, as well as to inform the development of further collaborations and opportunities on this topic. These may include future meetings, publishing opportunities and multimedia production. DEADLINE Aug 20th, 2017

  2. Those who wish to attend in a less active capacity are invited to register via Eventbright and come along on either day to participate in any way you wish. Opportunities for participation are limited, so please register early.

This workshop is envisioned as the first in a series of transnational collaborations and a platform for future publications.
