1971-2008: Culture Between Two Crises

updated: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:45pm
NEMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The urgency to understand the transformations in the capitalist world system since the 1970s and describe its volatile processes of expansion has spawned a few creative attempts at periodization: Eric Hobsbawm’s “Landslide” (1994), Robert Brenner’s “The Long Downturn” (2006), Immanuel Wallerstein’s “Managed Decline” (2006), and Judith Stein’s “Age of Inequality” (2010) to name only a few. While economists and historians may disagree about the sources of crisis, from Harvey’s over-accumulation thesis to Brenner’s over-production and over-competition, there remains little doubt that the 1970s proved to be a “pivotal decade” and that we are now living with the consequences.

The Country and the City Rebooted

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:43pm
ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

In his 1973 classic, The Country and the City, Raymond Williams noted an ideological divide between the country and the city, stating: “powerful, hostile associations have also developed: on the city as a place of noise, worldliness and ambition; on the country as a place of backwardness, ignorance, limitation. A contrast between country and city, as fundamental ways of life, reaches back into classical times” (1). Williams seeks to bridge this divide by demonstrating the ways in which both country and city were bound together in a complex system of rural exploitation. Nevertheless, today the ideological divide between rural and urban is as strong as ever, as highlighted by the recent U.S. presidential election cycle.
