Conference: After Neoliberalism? Kilburn Manifesto Conference

 After Neoliberalism? The Kilburn ManifestoSaturday 21 February, 9.30am - 4pm
Human Rights Action Centre, London, EC2A 3EA 

To celebrate the completion of After Neoliberalism? The Kilburn Manifesto written by the late Stuart Hall, Doreen Massey and Michael Rustin, Soundings Journal is organising a one day conference to discuss and develop the ideas outlined in the Manifesto, and the seminars that accompanied each instalment.

Although the neoliberal economic settlement is unravelling, its political underpinning remains largely unchallenged. The analyses in The Kilburn Manifesto call into question the foundational assumptions of the neoliberal order, and argue for radical alternatives that are capable of challenging the system as a whole.

The conference will combine plenary discussions with smaller breakout sessions to build on the themes of the Manifesto, and to debate ways forward.

Participants from all backgrounds - academics, students, activists, journalists and commentators, or anyone interested in joining in the conversation - are welcome.

Following the conference, there will be a reception from 4.30pm - 6.30pm at 71a Leonard Street to launch the printed version of After Neoliberalism? The Kilburn Manifesto and to honour its co-editor, Stuart Hall.

To find out more about the conference, please visit the Soundings website.

Stuart Hall, Doreen Massey and Michael Rustin founded Soundings in 1995. Doreen Massey is Emeritus Professor of Geography at The Open University. Michael Rustin is Professor of Sociology at the University of East London. Stuart Hall was Emeritus Professor at The Open University.
