The aftershocks of the 2008 financial crisis are still being felt and the consequences of COVID-19 for economy and society will be with us for a long time. A series of utopian and dystopian visions of the futures of work and capitalism have sprung up alongside these crises, seeking to make sense of an age defined by technological shifts, populist upheaval, digital authoritarianism and global pandemic. This special event in collaboration with Bristol Festival of Ideas and Political Quarterly picks through these futures and debates their political implications on both the national and international stage.
This is a Festival of Ideas Online event and will take place on our Crowdcast platform. You can find out more about how this works in our blog.
