Society for Socialist Studies

We wish to ‘energize class struggles’, understanding that the class relationship in contemporary capitalism is mediated by forms of oppression related to gender, race, able-bodiedness and orientation, and is articulated with the ongoing colonization of Indigenous peoples across lands and waters claimed by Canada. We consider ‘energizing class struggles’ as a possibility – the potential for revitalized struggles by and for equity-seeking groups, subaltern classes and among diverse Indigenous peoples against an unjust colonial-capitalist world system. At the same time, energetic class struggles are a variable historical reality across the whole of society, in areas ranging from the arts to literary studies to everyday economics in the home, the workplace and the community. In short, the working classes have never merely accepted their domination but have always fought battles against the power of capital in very unequal conditions. The University, too, is a site of sometimes-energetic, sometimes-waning class struggle: on the one hand, the University’s institutions and relationships reflect the relative dominance of the capitalist class in radically unequal times, including the power of resource extraction industries to shape university institutions and aims. On the other hand, the working classes, women (and women-identified) and subaltern groups have sought to challenge the expression of capitalist power in academia and society more broadly. At least since the 1970s, diverse Indigenous peoples have likewise sought simultaneously to ‘decolonize’ and ‘indigenize’ university spaces as part of broader struggles of Indigenous self-determination and liberation. This year, the Society invites participants to critically reflect upon the histories of vital class struggles. We call upon contributors to think through the possibilities for re-energizing class and Indigenous struggles in an historical moment of unprecedented capitalist class power.
