Classes and Discussions
Spring 2015 — note dates and location!
We are close to completing the lecture series by Professor David Harvey, “Reading Marx’s Capital, Volume 2.” David Harvey is a Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), Director of The Center for Place, Culture and Politics, and author of numerous books. Dr. Harvey has been teaching Karl Marx's Capital for over 40 years. You can also view his lectures on his website. There are also printed compilations of his lectures, A Companion to Marx’s Capital published by Verso in 2010. and A Companion to Marx’s Capital Volume 2 published by Verso in 2013.
Starting in January 2015, because of remodeling, the SMUD conference rooms will not be available. So we are shifting the former Tuesday class/discussion operations to the Colonial Heights Library, 4799 Stockton Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95820. (This is at the corner of Stockton Blvd and 21st Avenue. There is a spacious parking lot.) We can't reserve the rooms too far in advance but so far we have the second and third Tuesdays for January, February and March:
Format: Dr. Harvey's lectures are each about two hours long, including some Q&A from his live classes. We show half the lecture in each of our sessions, having our own discussion after each. In the schedule below we have provided links to the lecture online, in case you want to watch in advance. Dr. Harvey means his lectures to be an accompaniment to reading Marx's Capital, so we have also provided links to the appropriate chapters. However, if you haven't read the chapters of Capital in advance, come anyway—perhaps you'll be inspired to try it. The Harvey lectures are based on the Penguin Classics edition of Capital Volumes 2 and 3.
