Black Skin, White Marx?

Two mighty radical intelligences are to be encountered in New Cross this Friday, with Goldsmiths Centre for Cultural Studies presenting Professor Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak (University Professor and Director of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University, USA - theorist of the subaltern and the post-colonial subject) and Professor Fred Moten (Professor of English, Duke University, USA - poet, writer on jazz and thoughtist). The two will be speaking on 'Black Skin, White Marx?' in dialogue with Karl Marx (sadly unable to be present) on 'issues of race, critique and the possibilities for a radical politics to come'.

It takes place on 4th June 2010, 1pm - 4pm at the Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre
Goldsmiths in New Cross. All welcome - you don't need to be a Goldsmiths student - and admission is free.

This will be heavy, your head will probably be spinning afterwards but if you come away without some things to think about I would be very surprized.
