History and Political Economy Colloquium with Dr. Giuliana Perrone | “Abolition and Capitalism” | Feb 24, 12 PM | HSSB 4080

February 24, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The colloquium offers a forum for open, substantive discussions on how to approach political economy from a historical perspective; how to grapple with and benefit from the epistemological diversity surrounding political economy; and how a historical take on political economy can help contextualize and address urgent contemporary issues– at UCSB, in Santa Barbara/Southern California, in the U.S., and around the world – ranging from rent, inflation, and student debt to deepening, racialized inequality. For that purpose, we will center our own research and put our work into conversation across geographical, chronological, and field boundaries. 

At our third meeting, we will discuss “abolition and capitalism” with Professor Giuliana Perrone, Assistant Professor, Department of History, UCSB.

Required Readings: Sinha – The Problem of Abolition in the Age of Capitalism (1) Perrone Chapter
