Socialism is often discussed as a singular, proper noun devoid of ideological, regional, political, or economic difference. Several types of socialism were operative in the twentieth century--from Soviet state socialism to Yugoslav worker self-management. What were some of the transnational movements of socialist experimentation and how, in the later decades of the twentieth century, intersect with, offer alternatives, and even shape neoliberalism? The first interview for REEES Series "Socialism: Past, Present, and Future" with Johanna Bockman will examine her work on second and third world perspectives on globalization, neoliberalism, and socialism.

This event is a part of the Socialism: Past, Present, and Future Pop-Up Course.
