JOEL KOVEL ON ECO-SOCIALISM AT LSE May 4th

ECOSOCIALISM AND THE RED-GREEN REVOLUTION

PROF. JOEL KOVEL TO GIVE A TALK ON ECO-SOCIALISM AT LSE CHAIRED BY DR. DEREK
WALL

VENUE: Room G108, 20 Kingsway Building ('G' Building), Portugal Street (Opposite
Peacock Theatre), LSE Campus
DATE AND TIME: Friday May 4th 2007, 6-8pm

Prof. Joel Kovel, Jewish-American political activist and respected academic in
psychoanalysis and the social sciences, will give a talk at the London School of
Economics (LSE) on Friday May 4th 2007 at 6pm about Eco-socialism and his new
book, 'Overcoming Zionism'.

In an event chaired by Dr. Derek Wall, Visiting Lecturer at Goldsmiths College
and Male Principal Speaker of the Green Party of England and Wales, Prof. Kovel
will discuss the latest developments in Eco-socialism, an idea that Prof. Kovel
has detailed thoroughly in his acclaimed book 'The Enemy of Nature: The End of
Capitalism or the End of the World?'. Eco-socialism sees capitalism as the cause
of ecological destruction and social injustice, and Kovel advocates a complete
restructuring of society to move towards a world based on sustainability,
equality, peace and participatory democracy.

Prof. Kovel is currently Distinguished Professor of Social Studies at Bard
College. He was a candidate against Ralph Nader for the Green Party of the US
nomination for US President in 2000. He has written award-winning books on
psychiatry and psychoanalysis, including 'The Radical Spirit: Essays on
Psychoanalysis and Society', winner of the 1989 Choice Outstanding Academic
Book, and 'White Racism: A Psychohistory', which was nominated for a National
Book Award in Religion and Philosophy. His work on politics and Eco-socialism
includes the critically-acclaimed 'Enemy of Nature: The End of Capitalism or The
End of the World?'. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Eco-socialist journal
'Capitalism Nature Socialism'. Kovel is also involved in peace campaigns,
Central American solidarity movements and the movements for democratic media.
His latest book, 'Overcoming Zionism', argues for a secular, single-state
solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict and, in the view of Michel
Warschawski, former Director of the Alternative Information Centre in Jerusalem,
shows a "very deep feeling of empathy and solidarity with his fellow-Jews caught
in the death-trap of the Zionist adventure"[1].

Is Joel Kovel speaking anywhere else? Any chance of getting him at the Campaign against Climate Change Conference the weekend after?

Someone should really get the audio of the talk online afterwards. Here's some from a recent talk he gave in Canada. http://demleft.blogspot.com/2007/04/audio-of-joel-kovel-on-ecosocialism.html

I think he is off to Denmark but I will ask him!

and as Tim says especially if you are on the blogsphere far away from Holborn tube, London on May 4th you can listen to him.

Great fun to go for a pint with him yesterday after my stint of demonstrating in Westminister

Anonymous comment above was by me.

Cheers, Derek for the comment on our blog, as I mentioned I recently read your book "Babylon and Beyond" which I found very enjoyable and a good introduction to the movements it engages with. I will give you a more sustained review when I get a chance,

Regards, Adam Johannes, Cardiff RESPECT

PS. I am a fan of Murray Bookchin's arguments for a social rather than deep ecology.

I would really like to attend this seminar, and would like to know do I have to be a LSE student / member of staff to be allowed entrance? If not, do I need to buy a ticket?

Thanks

Derek Wall said...
