A One-Day Conference in Memory of Erik Olin Wright. Erik Olin Wright spent the last years of his life thinking about ways to challenge and transform capitalist societies. He distilled his thinking in a book, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century (Verso, 2019). The symposium is designed to launch a debate about the strengths and weaknesses of Wright’s approach. We seek to both honor our colleague’s memory and assure that his ideas become part of current discussions of socialism and socialist strategy.

The event will consist of three panels during the day and an evening session that will include tributes to Wright and a keynote by his friend, Ira Katznelson. Full program: http://www.capitalismstudies.org/anti… This event is co-sponsored by the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies and the journal, Politics & Society.
