Taking Soundings in Leeds is delighted to host Professor Doreen Massey on Wednesday 19th June 2013. She will be speaking about the chapter she has co-written with Stuart Hall and Michael Rustin in a new e-book, published for Soundings journal by Lawrence and Wishart. Doreen says: “Although the neoliberal economic settlement is unravelling, its political underpinning remains largely unchallenged. Our manifesto calls into question the neoliberal order itself, and argues that we need radical alternatives to its foundational assumptions”.
Professor Massey is a leading social scientist. She is an Emeritus Professor of Geography at the Open University. She has written on globalisation, the City, and Latin American politics and culture, including Venezuela.
This important event is on Wednesday, 19th June 2013 at 6 pm, in AG02, Broadcasting Place (Opposite the Fenton Pub), Leeds Met University, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds 2. It is open to all, and it’s free, but a collection will be taken.
