...respond to Nancy Fraser's
'Feminism, Capitalism and the Cunning of History'

chaired by Eleanor Gordon

Nancy Fraser situates the feminist movement within the larger political context of its historical moment. She explains how some feminist demands for equality have been largely accepted, but, considering the process of feminism’s evolution in the changing social context of neoliberalism, this acceptance has come at the cost of decoupling feminism's emancipatory edge. Finally, Fraser contemplates the possible reorientation of feminism in the present context of capitalist crises, which could start a shift to a new form of social organising...

Fraser's assessment of the movement's trajectory and historical significance can be read at:

Imaginal Machines

Autonomy & Self-Organization in the Revolutions of Everyday Life

Stevphen Shukaitis
noon, Sat 8th May, CCA4 (cinema)
CCA - 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow G2 3JD

All power to the imagination? Over the past forty years to invoke the imagination as a basis for radical politics has become a cliché: a rhetorical utilization of ideas already in circulation, invoking the mythic unfolding of this self-institutionalizing process. But what exactly is radical imagination? Drawing from autonomist politics, class composition analysis, and avant-garde arts, Imaginal Machines explores the emergence, functioning, and constant breakdown of the embodied forms of radical imagination.
