Political economist Laura Horn will lead a workshop on possibilities for freedom inside and beyond capitalism. How can Sci-Fi help us break out of capitalist realism and show alternatives to dystopias?

After a short introduction, we will break into groups to discuss radical economic alternatives, what we know about them, how we think about them, and the contradictions that arise when working within and beyond the capitalist economy.

Spreker

Laura Horn

Laura Horn's (Associate Professor, Roskilde University) main research area is Global Political Economy, with particular attention to the regional manifestation of these structures and processes in the context of European integration. I’m interested in the changing nature of capitalist restructuring and how these developments affect social power relations. She also has a strong interest in critical feminist writing, as well as (Marxist) discussions of science fiction and dystopian literature.
