Sponsored by The New School for Social Research.
The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry will open part of its programming to the public — a series of lectures taught by this Summer’s faculty cohort of K. Anthony Appiah (Professor of Philosophy and Law, NYU), David Harvey (Professor of Anthropology and Geography, CUNY), and Michael Taussig (Professor of Anthropology, Columbia).
David Harvey’s lecture is entitled “Visualizing Capital”.
Marx defines capital as “value in motion.” Is there a way to map and visualize how capital moves around within the totality of a capitalist mode of production? And in what ways does creating such a visualization help clarify what Marx was attempting to do in the three volumes of Capital that he planned but never completed?

About the Institute:
The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry (ICSI) is designed to provide advanced graduate students and junior faculty from around the world with the opportunity to spend one week at the New School’s campus in Greenwich Village working closely with some of the most distinguished thinkers shaping the course of contemporary social inquiry. Each of these scholars will teach a week-long seminar on a foundational thinker or topic of contemporary concern in a series of hands-on, intensive, and intimate sessions.
