The 4th Biennial Conference of the Network for the Critical Study of Global Capitalism (NCSGC)

Featuring keynote speakers Luis Suarez and William I. Robinson



Colegio Universitario San Geronimo de La Habana
Intersection of Obispo and Mercaderes
Habana Vieja (Old Havana)


NOTE: This building stands out from the others in Old Havana. It is a modern building where everything else in Old Havana is at least 2 centuries old. There will be signs at the entrance to show you where to go. The entrance is an old stone portico, part of the Dominican built university that stood in that same location. The old stone portico is the way to get inside the building.


In today’s global political economy, we are witnessing a new era of integration and inequality, which is playing out through particular expressions of systemic crises. We are also witnessing the rise of a ultra-neoliberal authoritarian political project in the United States, in conjunction with the resurgence of right-wing political sectors across the Americas. What should we understand about the particularities of this globalization phase in the history of world capitalism, and in the context of these regions and their populations? How can working and popular classes, and their movements from below, effectively coordinate and struggle in a world of capitalist globalization?

The purpose of this conference is to focus critical studies of global capitalism on Central, North, and South America, and on the Caribbean, to provide opportunities for interested scholars and activists to explore, discuss, and debate related issues occurring in these regions. Read More >>
