Call for Submissions | The York Left Consortium: Reflections on Capitalism’s Half-Life
The blog, The York Left Consortium: Reflections on Capitalism’s Half-Life, has been hosting since last April 2020 written interventions relating to the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath by leftist faculty and graduate students at York University as well as invited non-York experts. There are a rich, insightful array of posts that show the impressive range of expertise and experience relating to the social, political, economic and environmental issues in society that are brought into relief by the pandemic.
We anticipated that the blog would expand its focus beyond the current moment associated with COVID-19, and Spring 2021 is an excellent opportunity for this transition.
We are seeking short posts as well as longer pieces on contemporary capitalist society. We would especially welcome speculations that critically address capitalism in relation to such issues as: work, race, the environment, activism, housing, cities, indigeneity, migrants, religion, imperialism, violence, democracy, fascism and authoritarianism. Authors can provide not just original writing for the blog but link and re-post pieces from other websites (personal or organizational).
Blog post guidelines:
- The pieces should not exceed 5,000 words, including a short abstract, though longer papers on specific topics may be accepted.
- We also accept pieces that were originally published elsewhere (and are permissible to re-post with appropriate attribution).
