Reading Capital with David Harvey

Tuesday, 15 May 2012

Geographer and social theorist David Harvey has been teaching Karl Marx’s Capital Volume 1 for over 40 years. His lectures are now available online and provide a lively and accessible means of approaching one of the most essential and relevant political, economic and theoretical texts of modern times.

In collaboration with Stills, The History of Art department at The University of Edinburgh will host a series of open discussion sessions based around these video lectures. Participants will read the relevant section of the book in advance before watching Harvey’s lecture together and discussing the material.
