Debt: between growth and crisisNeoliberalism, finance and globalization

Fri 9:30 am – PK-R605 – FR – Introductory session

Nous souhaitons explorer les contradictions du régime économique qui se déploie depuis une trentaine d’années au Québec et au Canada comme dans les pays anglo-saxons, et qui est marqué par la financiarisation de l’épargne et de la consommation des ménages. Pour ce faire, nous nous intéresserons à la dynamique entre la dimension idéologique du capitalisme et la condition économique des salariés. Nous examinerons d’abord les plus récentes données sur l’endettement des ménages au Canada. Ensuite, n…

Critical sociology of capitalismCapitalism

Fri 11:30 am – PK-R605 – FR – Introductory session

Cet atelier introductif vise à préciser la nature et la portée d’une approche critique en rapport à l’économie. Il s’agira avant tout de préciser en quoi consiste une sociologie critique de l’économie, en départageant celle-ci du discours économique lui-même. Alors que la science économique tend à aborder son objet comme un pur donné, comme un fait qui va de soi ou encore comme une réalité naturelle ou universelle qui aurait toujours existé – par exemple en soutenant que les marchés existaient d…

From the origins to neoliberal globalization : a history of capitalismCapitalism

Fri 2:00 pm – SH-R810 – FR – Introductory session

Cet atelier se veut une introduction aux différentes phases historiques du développement capitaliste, de ses origines jusqu’à aujourd’hui (sous-thème: Histoire du capitalisme: de sa naissance à aujourd’hui). Tout d’abord, il présentera différentes thèses sur les origines du capitalisme, en démontrant que celles-ci sont intimement liées à un débat sur la nature même de ce qu’est le capitalisme. Ensuite, il abordera les dimensions géo-politiques de son développement inégal à travers différentes ré…

Totalitarisme pervers et souveraineté des corporationsCapitalism

Fri 2:00 pm – SH-2420 – FR – Introductory session

L’essor des multinationales au XXe siècle a modifier en profondeur la façon d’appréhender la notion de souveraineté et de pouvoir. Même au sens strictement formel, il appert que les États n’en ont pas le monopole. Une nouvelle autorité se développe indépendamment d’eux, et interagit avec eux, soit celui des multinationales. Celles-ci exercent leur pouvoir sur des échelles, selon des logiques, sur des modes et par des approches qui diffèrent des pratiques connues des autorités politiques. Se mont…

Crisis, End or Continuity of american imperialism?Imperialism

Fri 2:00 pm – PK-1705 – FR – Introductory session

Pour plusieurs observateurs, les déploiements et exercices militaires des forces armées étatsuniennes avec leurs alliés en Europe et en Asie, sous la justification de contrer «l’expansionnisme russe et chinois», révèlent le début de la fin de l’impérialisme américain. Pour d’autres, il s’agit tout simplement d’une continuité, ayant qui plus est l’objectif de garder la mainmise sur des pays qui pourraient se distancier des États-Unis. D’un autre côté, les expéditions étatsuniennes en Afrique appa…

Financialization, Financial Crisis, DebtNeoliberalism, finance and globalization

Fri 4:00 pm – SH-3220 – FR – Introductory session

La lecture économique de la crise financière de 2008 et de ces conséquences se divise sur deux échelles : 1) loin d’encadrer davantage la finance, les nouveaux modes de régulation mis en place ont plutôt normalisé des pratiques financières risquées qui étaient au cœur même du déclenchement de la précédente crise; 2) Pour le Canada, on remarque un développement accru des activités spéculatives vers deux valeurs-refuges que sont l’immobilier et les ressources naturelles. La lecture politique de l…

The Trump Moment: Perspectives for the Radical LeftConjuncture

Fri 9:30 am – SH-3420 – EN/FR(Translation available) – Introductory session

The current conjuncture offers the radical left new opportunities but also poses serious challenges. We face, on the one hand, the ongoing global crisis of capitalism, low-levels of working-class self-organization, and the electoral successes of right-wing populism and the growth of fascism. On the other hand, we have also witnessed the popularity of the likes of Corbyn, Sanders and Mélenchon in the electoral realm, an openness to socialism amongst new generations of activists, and the growth or…

Islamophobia, Secularism, and the LeftRacism and colonialism

Fri 11:30 am – SH-3620 – EN/FR(Translation available) – Advanced session

Western and especially American imperialism has whipped up Islamophobia to justify their conquest and domination of the Middle East. The Western ruling classes have also used this ideology domestically to scapegoat Muslims and Islam as a threat to be policed by their states. Some on the left have adapted to this demonization of Muslims in the name of secularism and feminism, going so far as to endorse right wing calls for banning Muslim women from wearing the veil. This panel will reject such ar…

Marxism and the Fight to Liberate the OppressedFeminism

Fri 4:00 pm – SH-3420 – EN(Translation available) – Advanced session

Amidst the new radicalization struggles against class oppression and those for liberation of the oppressed are too often counter-posed. Sometimes self-proclaimed socialists reduce oppression to class, deny the autonomy and specificity of struggles against oppression, and promise that if workers unite as a class liberation will automatically follow. By contrast some forms of identity politics reject Marxism as having nothing to say about liberation struggles, reject the idea that workers and oppr…

Unions and Radical Social Changes : The Rank and File StrategyUnionism

Sat 2:00 pm – SH-3620 – EN(Translation available) – Introductory session

Governments and bosses across North America continue their offensive against unions, compelling them to adopt concessionary contracts or busting them. The old model of business unionism, in which union leaders hoped to achieve a partnership with their government and private sector bosses in the interests of their members, has utterly failed to defend let alone revive the union movement. An alternative would be to revive the radical tradition of rank-and-file unionism to defend their members, fig…

Québec, Scotland, and Catalonia: The Radical Left and the Struggle for National Self-DeterminationRacism and colonialism

Sat 4:00 pm – SH-3620 – EN/FR(Translation available) – Advanced session

The Great Recession and subsequent global slump have provoked a hegemonic crisis for the ruling classes in nation states throughout the world system. As states lose their legitimacy, nations within them and or oppressed by them have demanded the right to self-determination and independence. This panel will explore why and how the radical left should support these struggles in Québec, Catalonia, and Scotland.

The Syrian Revolution, Imperialism and the LeftImperialism

La révolution syrienne est devenue un point de désaccord principal opposant différentes tendances de la gauche internationale. Alors que certains groupes ont soutenu la lutte héroïque des Syriens sans hésitation, nombreux sont ceux qui l’ont trahis. Beaucoup d’intellectuels de gauche ont même refusé de montrer de l’empathie envers la population syrienne qui se bat contre la dictature alors qu’ils l’ont fait volontiers pour les sociétés tunisienne et égyptienne. Pire encore, certains n’ont pas hé…

Revolutionary Socialism for the 21st CenturyUtopia

Sun 11:30 am – SH-2560 – EN – Introductory session

Hal Draper famously argued that there were two souls of socialism—socialism from above and socialism from below. The dominant tradition of twentieth century socialism was two forms of socialism from above—Stalinism and social democracy. The former discredited socialism by confusing it with one party dictatorships that oppressed the laboring majority. And the latter betrayed the working class by managing the system in various countries during the post war boom and over the last forty years adopti…

Capital as Power

The Forum on Capital as Power brings together a diverse range of radically minded people who seek to explore the possibilities and limitations of the concept of power as an alternative basis for re-thinking political economy and its foundational categories of value, capital and accumulation. As the name of our forum suggests, we think that the Capital as Power framework offers a promising new alternative for pursuing radical and innovative research in political economy.

What is Capital as Power ?Critical theory

Fri 9:30 am – SH-3220 – EN – Introductory session

The ‘capital as power’ approach (CasP) offers a radical alternative to both liberal and Marxist political economies. In this approach, capital is viewed not as a productive economic entity, but as the central power institution of capitalist society at large, while capitalism as a whole is seen not as mode of production and consumption, but as a mode of power. The presentation highlights the main features of CasP, contrasts it with liberalism and Marxism, and outlines some of its key findings and…

Precarious accumulation

These panels seek to explore themes related to what we are calling ‘precarious accumulation’. Karl Marx argued that for workers, “the more the productivity of their labour increases, the more does their very function as a means for the valorization of capital become precarious”. We are suggesting, at a different level of analysis, that the accumulation process under capitalism can also be considered precarious. The capitalist economy is ever more productive, and produces ever more quantities of surplus value. However, no market mechanism has yet evolved to seamlessly transform that surplus value into profits.

Precarious Accumulation I – Value, Finance and CapitalismCapitalism

Fri 9:30 am – SH-R810 – EN – Advanced session

This first panel in the “Precarious Accumulation serie” will consider: The relationship between debt, profit and accumulation;The impact of structural inequalities on trajectories of economic growth – as emphasized, for instance, by the framework of Uneven and Combined Development;The centrality of the state in the accumulation process – as emphasized, for instance, by the framework of geopolitical economy.”

This second panel in the “Precarious Accumulation serie” will consider: The intersections of race, gender and class – from the standpoint of the labour process, the accumulation process, and the state;The relationship between free and unfree labour – from the standpoint of the labour process, the accumulation process, and the state;The manner in which the concrete analysis of actually-existing capitalism can be constrained and limited by overly-abstract and disembodied models of “Capital”.”

Alternative economies and Emancipation

Since the rise of a robust social economy sector in the late 1960s, Quebec has been heralded worldwide as a key site for such economic and political innovation. In recent years, in Quebec but also across the globe, activists emerging from struggles against globalisation, austerity and/or resource extraction have augmented their oppositional politics with new forms of autonomous, self-organised economic activity. Are alternative economic initiatives, old and new, contributing to fundamental social change? How are they enacting post-capitalist ways of being, thinking and doing? How has this praxis changed over the decades, how is it similar?
