The author of thirteen novels, two collections of short stories, seven non-fiction books, and a prolific and celebrated visual artist, Douglas Coupland’s oeuvre is inherently concerned with what it means to be living in our ‘extreme present’.

ACLA Seminar: Geographies of Racial Capitalism: Labor, Caste, Dispossession

updated:

Co-organizers: Najnin Islam (Colorado College), Neelofer Qadir (UNC, Greensboro)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

We understand racial capitalism as a global phenomenon hinged on long, connected histories of dispossession and labor across geographies and temporalities. Cedric Robinson’s pioneering Black Marxism emphasizes the tendency for capitalism “not to homogenize but to differentiate–to exaggerate regional, subcultural, and dialectical differences into racial ones.” Investigating how capital draws upon differences within Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean attunes us to otherwise obscured dynamics. What histories, archives, literatures, and methods expand the vocabulary for racial capitalism to account for the specificities of diverse contexts?
