Panel Organizers: R.A. Dello Buono, Manhattan College and David Fasenfest, Wayne State University
Description: The persistence of a deepening global crisis stubbornly defies analysis by the worn out paradigms of mainstream sociology. The discipline now finds itself running behind the curve of social change, challenging progressive sociologists to create new forms of analysis for grasping the contradictory structures of systemic crisis and fueling the resistance of progressive forces. The historical moment demands that critical sociologists work in better tandem with popular movements, building synergy in strategic analysis with actually existing struggles for confronting capital. This panel calls for reflection on the means by which critical, structural critique can better fuel mobilization and more actively contribute to building road maps to another possible world.
Panelists may submit papers for publication in a forthcoming symposium of Critical Sociology.
