Capitalism, Crisis, Critique: Klaus Dörre in Conversation with Emma Dowling

Is capitalism ending or will it recover? With the global financial crisis of 2008, the global economy has been catapulted into crisis. Our economic system can no longer be sustained by our planet and increasing inequality and social insecurity are eating away at the very core of economic and political

legitimacy. And yet, if capitalism can no longer continue, what might replace it? What part might progressive social movements play in shaping the contours of a post-capitalist future and what role for critique? Join Klaus Dörre and Emma Dowling to discuss some of the themes of the new book Sociology, Crisis, Critique by Klaus Doerre, Hartmut Rosa and Stephan Lessenich.

Klaus Dörre is Professor of Sociology at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena (Germany) where he chairs the Department of Labor, Industrial and Economic Sociology. He specialises in the Sociology of Labour as well as industrial and economic sociology. His areas of research include the theory of capitalism, finance capitalism, flexible and precarious employment, labour relations and strategic unionism, and the Green New Deal, among others. He is the current director of the German Research Foundation research group Post-Growth Societies.

Emma Dowling is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Middlesex University. She is the author of a forthcoming book on the crisis of care with Verso.
