The MA in ‘Global Urban Justice’ and the ‘Cities and Social Justice’ research cluster at the School of Geography, University of Leeds are organising a workshop with John Holloway. Holloway is a Professor of Sociology at the Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y humanidades in the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, Mexico. He has published widely on Marxist theory, on the Zapatista movement and on the new forms of anti-capitalist struggle. His book ‘Change the World Without Taking Power’ (Pluto, London, 2002, new edition 2010) has been translated into eleven languages and has stirred an international debate. His more recent book, ‘Crack Capitalism’ (Pluto, 2010), takes the argument further by suggesting that the only way in which we can think of revolution today is as the creation, expansion, multiplication and confluence of cracks in capitalist domination. John visited the School of Geography at Leeds previously in 2011 and delivered a set of public lectures that can be watched here: https://johnhollowayinleeds.wordpress.com/ .
