Join us for the eighth seminar in the Soundings' After Neoliberalism? Kilburn Manifesto series, in which Michael Rustin (Professor of Sociology at UEL) will introduce the latest instalment 'Rethinking the Neoliberal World Order' to open a debate on the centrality of a global perspective in understanding neoliberalism. Jo Littler will chair the discussion, with Justin Rosenberg (Sussex University) and David Wearing (SOAS) providing responses.
"After Neoliberalism?" is an online manifesto - edited by Soundings founding editors Stuart Hall, Doreen Massey, and Mike Rustin - which seeks to open up space to debate alternatives to current dominant neoliberal systems. Previous instalments of the manifesto can be read online at http://www.lwbooks.co.uk/journals/soundings/manifesto.html.
