« Disaggregating Primitive Accumulation »

 

In recent years, the category of ‘primitive accumulation’ has been resurrected from Marx’s Capital, Vol. 1 and redeployed as a tool of critical theory. This lecture evaluates this approach with a particular eye to its utility as a tool of analysis linking the critique of capitalism to that of colonization. I contend that the category cannot be usefully expanded without prior disaggregation and reconstruction.

« Dispossession : A Conceptual Reconstruction »

 

This lecture provides a critical-historical reconstruction of the concept of dispossession. Drawing upon Marx’s critique of French anarchism in particular, Part I identifies a persistent limitation at the heart of the concept. Since dispossession presupposes prior possession, recourse to it appears conservative and tends to reinforce the very proprietary and commoditized models of social relations that radical critics generally seek to undermine. Part II turns to use of the term in Indigenous struggles against colonization, both in order to better grasp the stakes of the above problematic and suggest a way beyond it.

« The Indigenous Tradition of Counter-Dispossession »

 

This lecture analyzes how Indigenous peoples in the Anglo-settler world have critiqued processes of colonial dispossession, and how that critique has in turn transformed the collective subject of ‘indigeneity’ itself.

« Dilemmas of Self-Ownership, Rituals of Antiwill »

 

Various political and intellectual traditions have sought to leverage the language of self-ownership as a tool of radical critique, including Marxism, feminism, and Critical Race Theory. This lecture considers the dilemmas involved in this move, situating it within the broader framework of dispossession.
