Guy Standing

Defining the precariat

A class in the making

Class has not disappeared. Instead, a more fragmented global class structure has emerged alongside a more flexible open labour market. This prompts Guy Standing to forge a new vocabulary capable of describing class relations in the global market system of the twenty-first century. [more]

Bo Isenberg

Critique and crisis

Reinhart Koselleck's thesis of the genesis of modernity

The modern consciousness as crisis: Reinhart Koselleck's study of the origins of critique in the Enlightenment and its role in the revolutionary developments of the late eighteenth century is a work of historical hermeneutics whose relevance remains undiminished. [Russian version added] [more]

Leila Brännström, Anders Johansson, Sharon Rider, Malin Rönnblom

What is the state of critique today?

A conversation with Anders Johansson, Sharon Rider and Malin Rönnblom

Is what is taken to be critique today merely confirmation of the moral consensus? In the neoliberal culture of the audit, has critique been deprived of its role as check on ideology? And does preference for impact-oriented research produce political compliance rather than independent critical thought? [more]

Sverker Sörlin

The new boundaries of mankind

Modernist humanism, in which individual rights and freedoms are won at the expense of the natural world, is entering into ever greater tension with the new emphasis on interconnectedness. Sverker Sörlin on the scientific renegotiation of concepts of humanity and nature. [more]

Cas Mudde

The populist radical Right: A pathological normalcy

According to the conventional view, the far-Right in Europe is antithetical to the values of liberal democracy. New research showing that far-Right ideology is a radicalization of mainstream values has a major impact on how rightwing populism is understood, writes Cas Mudde. [more]

Magnus Ryner

An obituary for the Third Way

The financial crisis and social democracy in Europe

The Third Way made a virtue out of the necessity to adapt social democracy to the global market. But when the US system on which it was modelled collapsed, European social democracy was in no state to offer an alternative, argues Magnus Ryner. [more]

Rasmus Fleischer

The revenge of the beer fiddlers?

The regulation of amateurs in musical life

Cultural professionalism is not the simple expression of an all-embracing economic logic, but generated and sustained by specific institutions, writes Rasmus Fleischer. A history of the three hundred year-old struggle between professional and amateur musicians in Sweden. [more]

Anders Ramsay

Marx? Which Marx?

Marx's naturalistic understanding of value as being inherent in a commodity has led many interpreters to see money and credit as surface phenomena. In doing so, they overlook the contemporary role played by credit in the reproduction of capital, writes Anders Ramsay. [more]

Åsa Knaggård

Inexact science

Climate policy between experts and politicians

Climate policy is heavily dependent on expert opinion. Yet uncertainty surrounds the science of climate change, and in particular the 2°C target. Does politics' reliance on inexact science disqualify its decisions? Not necessarily, writes Åsa Knaggård. [more]

Olle Sahlström

Migration: a lever for union renewal?

The trade union is at a crossroad. Immigrant workers must be included in the unions. Either one chooses to try classic methods of organization, or entirely new directions which risk a widening of the gap between the white, male worker aristocracy and the poor, exploited migrant worker. [more]

Beverley Skeggs

On the economy of moralism and working class properness

An interview with Beverley Skeggs

"Respectability is not only about cleaning your house but also, literally, about existing as a citizen." Beverley Skeggs criticizes theories of intersectionality for their tendency to group categories that are in complex relation to capital. [more]

Jakob Norberg

No coffee

What is it about coffee – and coffeehouses – that makes it so agreeable to the bourgeoisie? asks Jakob Norberg in a brief social history of the dark, rich brew. And of the bourgeois public sphere. [more]

Jamie Peck

The creativity fix

In Richard Florida's "creative city", the creative class dissolves the classical division between the productive bourgeoisie and the bohemian. But creativity strategies have been crafted to co-exist with urban socio-economic problems, not to solve them. [more]

Luka Arsenjuk

On Jacques Rancière

Politics begins when inequality is challenged, according to Jacques Rancière. But if the political subject is by definition the subject of a wrong, how can politics operate outside a victim discourse? [more]

Petya Kabakchieva

Eurolocal perspectives towards the EU

Imagining the European Union as a nation-state

In Bulgaria, the EU has replaced the nation-state as a symbol of authority. Nevertheless, regional identity won't get lost, since regions "are a configuration of liminalities that overlap and accrue, providing different options". [more]

Saskia Sassen, Magnus Wennerhag

Denationalized states and global assemblages

An interview with Saskia Sassen

"The liberal state has been hijacked for neoliberal agendas," says Saskia Sassen in interview. It is necessary to repossess the state apparatus for genuine liberal democracy and to create a "denationalized state". [more]
