World-Systems Analysis in a Critical Juncture 5: Geopolitics, Imperialism, and Finance
October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Arrighi Center is co-sponsoring the 44th Annual Conference on the Political Economy of the World-System, “World-Systems Analysis in a Critical Juncture.” The conference takes place during a critical juncture for both the field of world-systems analysis and for the world-system itself. The first four sessions of the conference bring together papers that reconstruct the theoretical and methodological lineages of world-systems analysis by recuperating neglected foundational texts and by putting the world-systems perspective into dialogue with other critical approaches in the social sciences. The next four sessions deploy tools provided by a world-systems perspective to analyze the multiple intertwined social, political, and economic challenges of the current juncture, illuminating the global crisis and unfolding systemic chaos.
