Upcoming 3CT Conference


Dec 3-5, 2010

The Chicago Center for Contemporary Theory (3CT) invites you to join us for the inaugural conference of its new Economy and Society Series:

The Global Crisis: Rethinking Economy and Society

The ongoing global economic crisis poses a serious challenge to our understanding of large-scale social processes and, hence, of our own historical circumstances.  Global capitalist society appears to be entering a new phase, yet the social sciences seem ill-equipped to elucidate the systemic dynamics of this transformation. This conference brings together key economists, sociologists, political scientists and historians to discuss the social and economic transformations characterizing the contemporary world as well as the implications of these transformations for the study of economic life.

Confirmed Participants Include:

  • David Harvey
  • Duncan Foley
  • Beverly Silver
  • Immanuel Wallerstein
  • Vivek Chibber
  • Ho-fung Hung
