Call For Papers:

Global Capitalism in the Americas
The 4th Biennial Conference of the Network for the Critical Study of Global Capitalism (NCSGC)

November 1-3, 2017
La Habana, Cuba

Featuring keynote speakers Luis Suarez and William I. Robinson

Co-sponsored by the Universidad de La Habana

In today’s global political economy, we are witnessing a new era of integration and inequality, which is playing out through particular expressions of systemic crises. We are also witnessing the rise of a ultra-neoliberal authoritarian political project in the United States, in conjunction with the resurgence of right-wing political sectors across the Americas. What should we understand about the particularities of this globalization phase in the history of world capitalism, and in the context of these regions and their populations? How can working and popular classes, and their movements from below, effectively coordinate and struggle in a world of capitalist globalization?

The purpose of this conference is to focus critical studies of global capitalism on Central, North, and South America, and on the Caribbean, to provide opportunities for interested scholars and activists to explore, discuss, and debate related issues occurring in these regions.

• The transnational capitalist class across the Americas.
• Capitalist globalization, capital accumulation and development.
• Trumpism: the rise of neo-liberal authoritarianism and its neo-fascist contingents.
• Movements from below, activism, and the popular classes in the 21st century Americas.
• Migration and crossing borders.
• Transnational capital and the state .
• State repression, militarization, soft power, & coup d’etats.
• Class war on the marginalized and super-exploited.
• Financialization and tax havens.
• Education and other institutions.
• Global corporate networks intersecting with Latin America and the Caribbean.
• Capitalism, class and power relations in these regions.
• Gendered and Racialized social relations in the Western Hemisphere .
• Ideological formation in the global epoch.
• Natural resource conflicts and environmental movements.

All abstracts (100 words) must be submitted by August 15, 2017 to:
