Benjamin Noys (University of Chichester): Accelerate Europe – the geographical imaginaries of accelerationism

4 December 2014, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

How can we imagine a way out of the stasis of a Europe mired in financial crisis? The proponents of ‘accelerationism’ argue the need to embrace forces of abstraction and technology that can escape ‘old’ Europe. In this talk, Benjamin Noys will critically explore these alternative geographical imaginaries as attempts to come to terms with the ‘uneven’ forms of capital within Europe.
