We will have seminars where we read theoretical texts - which can both be classics - here it can be mentioned that our circle about Marx will continue - and contemporary theorists. But we will also deepen our research profile: transformation of the city and an increasingly precarious labor market. These two themes will also be woven together - how the city that is being developed now presupposes a low-paid and flexible workforce.


The first seminar of the autumn will be theoretical. We read excerpts from Raymond Williams' classic Keywords along with the book Keywords. The New Language of Capitalism by John Patrick Leary (2019) Haymarket books.
