The Aftermath of Defeat

 A Conversation with Anna Minton and Richard Seymour

In January 2019 we were planning a public event with Anna Minton and Richard Seymour, discussing the aftermath of the December 2019 general election and the then-ongoing Labour Party leadership election. We had to cancel the event because of a problem with the venue and instead recorded a conversation between Anna, Richard and Jeremy as a podcast a few weeks later. This was all before the Covid-19 crisis struck and before the leadership election was resolved. Also, I had a heavy cold while we were doing it (no, it wasn’t Covid). Still, there were many interesting insights from Anna and Richard that we thought worth preserving, so here it is.

‘Women, Work, Equality: From Dagenham to the Coalition Cuts’ Podcast

Professor Maggie Humm reported that the ‘Women, Work, Equality: From Dagenham to the Coalition Cuts’ event was a key finale to our successful seminar series, ‘women are being hit disproportionately by the Budget cuts. Studies show they will carry three-quarters of the burden because they rely more on benefits, and two-thirds of public sector workers are women (77% of the NHS). Women are also over-represented in part-time and hourly paid jobs. Already more than 30,000 women a year lose their jobs due to pregnancy’.

The Critical Lede has announced a brand new interview with member of the CCSR Advisory Board Lawrence Grossberg about his new book Cultural Studies in the Future Tense. In the interview Dr. Grossberg discusses the problem of reductionism in much of current cultural studies work, how to remedy it with radical contextuality, culture as both transcendent and particularizing and much more. The interview can be heard by going to http://bit.ly/gHpYG4 and clicking the podcast tab on the top of the page. It can also be accessed for free by searching  The Critical Lede on iTunes.
