Session three of the Socialist Night School.

The question of social reproduction is the question of how workers are “reproduced” in order to keep capitalism surging along. Many humans — esp. women — spend much of their time in the (often unrecognized) work of social reproduction. But this work is also a rich terrain for struggle! Come study the feminist Marxist concept of social reproduction with us, and think through how this concept can help us make larger demands for a better society.

The session will be led by Amanda Huron, associate professor of interdisciplinary social sciences at the University of the District of Columbia, and author of Carving Out the Commons: Tenant Organizing and Housing Cooperatives in Washington, D.C.

The session will be a mix of lecture and discussion.

We’ll be discussing Capitalism’s Crisis of Care by Nancy Fraser: https://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/nancy-fraser-interview-capitalism-crisis-of-care
