Despite optimistic declarations to the contrary in the heady days of 2007-8, neoliberalism has survived the recent financial crisis. This event draws together speakers who look to different social and cultural, macro and micro articulations of neoliberalism to explain its hold. This evening’s debate will consider singular genres and vernaculars of neoliberalism and the way they each speak to, and produce particular subjectivities.
Please advertise to friends and colleagues, but note that spaces are limited and people must register by signing up at:

This event has been jointly organised by the Institute of North American Studies and the English Department.
