The York Left Consortium: Reflections on Capitalism’s Half-Life is a blog that gathers 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 can provide not just original writing for the blog but link and re-post pieces from other websites (personal or organizational).  Ultimately, it is hoped the site will become a platform for York’s Left  beyond the current moment associated with COVID-19.

We look forward to your submissions. Contact Robert Latham ( and Raju Das (
