The Great Transition 2021: Building Utopias

You are here

20 May, 2021 to 23 May, 2021

Iconography of people holding up signs in front of a city with trees and bikesOne of the deepest political lessons of our times is that the radical left is undergoing a crisis. We are currently unable to articulate a clear vision for the future. “Anti-capitalism”, “anti-racism”, “Change the system, not the climate”, “Another world is possible”: our vocabulary expresses a negative and defensive political impulse, underlining our incapacity to put forward a positive, inspiring project.

Now is the time to act. The multi-faceted crisis we are going through requires the creation of new utopias. This is why The Great Transition invites you to reflect on alternative models and new political strategies in tune with our current situation.

This year, we will be presenting over twenty panels covering various themes such as radical internationalism, alternatives to platform capitalism, the political economy of disability and the democratization of unions. Our keynote speakers include Holly Lewis, Asad Haider, Robert Brenner and Arlene Inouye. The theme – Building Utopias – is all the more important today as we seek to imagine and build the world to come.
