Dr Rafal Soborski, Professor of International Politics at Richmond, presented his paper, Prefigurative Politics in Global Anti-Neoliberal Activism: A Critique, at the Seventeenth Annual Global Studies Association of North America Conference at Howard University in Washington DC (June 6-8, 2018). The special theme of the conference was “Globalization, Race, and the New Nationalism” and Rafal’s paper provided a critique of prefigurative politics by mapping the problems that it has posed to the dominant forms of global anti-neoliberal resistance.

Earlier this month, Rafal convened one of the sessions at the annual conference of the UK branch of the Global Studies Association (at University of Northampton). The session was titled ‘Globalization and Ideology’. More information about this and the other five themes/sessions is available here. Rafal is now ma ember of the GSA committee and as such is involved in managing the organization’s activities.
