About this Unit
Researching Post-Capitalist Possibilities offers HDR students the opportunity to explore how the humanities and social sciences can play a role in making other worlds possible. It develops the thinking capacities we need as scholars to shape the world and reviews the ethical responsibilities that come with this work. It offers an opportunity to work with scholar members of the Community Economies Collective within the Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) who have been thinking outside or beyond capitalist relations since the publication of J.K. Gibson-Graham’s The End of Capitalism (As We Knew It) in 1996.
