WORKING GROUP

Class Struggle Revisited: Theory, Method, & Praxis

Jackman Humanities Institute Working Group 2020-2021 

Faculty Lead: Dr. Shahrzad Mojab 

Organizing Team: Genevieve Ritchie, Shirin Haghgou, & Wesal Abu Qaddum

Taking the social relations of class struggle as its point of departure, the Working Group strives to make sense of and retheorize the chaotic yet organized conditions of global accumulation, displacement, and dispossession. Although class formations determine the exploitation of working people, class struggle encompasses myriad processes and practices of ideological repression, which include, without being limited to, hetero-patriarchy, racialization, colonization, migration, Indigenous erasure, nationalism, and white supremacy. In the Working Group, we will bring seminal works into conversation with emergent social struggles by revisiting the theory, method, and praxis of class struggle.

September 2020 – April 2021
