Monthly ClassCrits Remote Events Scheduled for 2020-21
ClassCrits will be scheduling monthly workshops and other events this fall and next spring in lieu of our annual in-person conference, which has been postponed to next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Monthly events will focus on pandemic inequality, the new Journal of Law and Political Economy, and on democracy, social justice and the 2020 election, and will also include a junior-scholar work-in-progress online workshop and a blog symposium on racial capitalism.
