Join us for a friendly discussion of Capital Vol. 1 via video lectures by David Harvey, 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. He has been teaching Karl Marx's Capital for over 40 years, and has posted his lectures at http://davidharvey.org/. We are showing some of them over the summer. Harvey’s 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. June 12 and 26: Lecture 1: Introduction (key concepts and Marx's method.) July 10 and 24: Lecture 2: Chapters 1–2. Read Chapter 1 (the Commodity). Read Chapter 2 (Exchange). August 14 and 28: Lecture 3: Chapter 3. Read Chapter 3 (Money, or the Circulation of Commodities).
