David Harvey is a Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), Director of The Center for Place, Culture and Politics, and author of numerous books. Harvey has been teaching Karl Marx's Capital for over 40 years. He has posted his lectures on his http://davidharvey.org/ and we will be showing some of them over the summer. The lectures are each about two hours long, including some Q&A. We propose to split each of the first three lectures into two parts; and we will show the video of each, having our own discussion after each. In the schedule below we have provided links to the lecture online, in case you want to watch in advance. Dr. Harvey means his lectures to be an accompaniment to reading Marx's Capital Vol. 1, so we have also provided links to the appropriate chapters. However, if you haven't read the chapters of Capital in advance, come anyway—perhaps you'll be inspired to try it. We will be starting with the second half of lecture 5. We stopped about halfway through the lecture, but I’m not sure where that is in the reading. Here’s Lecture 5: November 27: Lecture 5: Chapters 7–9 (first hour) Read Ch. 7: The Labour-Process and the Process of Producing Surplus-Value Read Ch. 8: Constant Capital and Variable Capital Read Ch. 9: The Rate of Surplus-Value January 24 – Lecture 5, part 2. (second hour, approximately)
