The York Left Consortium: Reflections on Capitalism’s Half-Life is a blog that began its life as a space for written interventions relating to the coronavirus and its aftermath by leftist faculty and grad students at York (as well as some non-York experts invited by York faculty and students). It features short blog posts as well as longer thought pieces, and speculations. Authors provide not just original writing for the blog but link and re-post pieces from other websites (personal or organizational). In Spring 2021, we are seeking 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.
