  • The seminary 'International Sociological Debates at the University of Barcelona' (ISDUB) is proposed as a means to promote high quality international debate among social scientists, from the perspective of sociology, which will be key to understanding the problems and contribute to the resolution of conflicts in our society.
    Lecture: 'Challenging (and maybe transcending) capitalism through real utopias' teaching by Erik Olin Wright.

    While capitalism has become more destructive both to the lives of people and the health of the environment, it seems to most people an unalterable force of nature. Social democratic hopes of taming capitalism by neutralizing its harmful effects through decisive state regulations have been undermined by the globalization and financialization of capital. Revolutionary ambitions of smashing capitalism through a ruptural seizure of state power, a coercive dissolution of capitalist institutions and their replacement by an emancipatory alternative, lack credibility. Are these the only logics of transformation? There may be a different route that points beyond capitalism: eroding capitalism by building emancipatory alternatives to capitalism in the spaces and cracks within capitalist economies and struggling to defend and expand those spaces.

    The event takes place on 25th march 2015, Wednesday; in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Barcelona (UB).
