Accepted Paper:

Not globalization: on the relations between class and culture in the light of the current crisis  
Jonathan Friedman (EHESS Paris/in USA UCSD, San Diego)

Paper long abstract:

The current global crisis is a diagnostic expression of relations that are often hidden from view if not simply repressed. This paper addresses the nature of the structures of cosmology in contemporary capitalist orders and their relation to class structure and cultural production as they are revealed in crisis via the social struggles and contested representations of reality that have dominated recent debates and 'non-debates'. The analysis is yet another onslaught on the failure of certain assumptions of the discourses of globalization and an argument for a systemic analysis of contradictory social orders.
