Radical May Events

The world has been hit by a pandemic that has shaken the foundations of capitalist society. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to think and discuss the ideas that will bring about the profound transformations that our societies need.

The world of books — and especially critical-minded publishers — are experiencing a very difficult time internationally, given the closure of bookstores. And in difficult times, we need to unite. For this reason, a series of radical publishers from around the world, together with LITERAL — a radical festival of books and ideas — have organized an online radical book fair, running activities in as many time zones and languages as possible in order to spread the radical ideas that will change the world.

In this spirit, across the month of May we will enjoy #RadicalMay — a varied and multilingual programme of round tables, talks and debates around the ideas that will transform the world to come.

Also don't forget to checkout the Left Book Club!

Join BTL and Pluto Press for the webinar Life-Making, Capitalism and the Pandemic: Feminist Ideas About Women's Work featuring BTL author Susan Ferguson and Tithi Bhattacharya. The pandemic has shone a light on the importance of the Marxist concept of social reproduction theory. Engaging with feminist anti-work critiques, the speakers propose that women's emancipation depends upon a radical reimagining of all labour and advocates for a renewed social reproduction framework as a powerful basis for an inclusive feminist politics.
