Webinar – Francesco Boldizzoni: "Foretelling the end of capitalism. Intellectual misadventures since Karl Marx." (based on the book with the same name, Harvard University Press, 2020)

Francesco Boldizzoni is an economic and intellectual historian, Professor of Political Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim. His 2011 book, The Poverty of ClioResurrecting Economic History, won much acclaim in both fields of economic and intellectual history. He is currently working on a project about the role of social democracy in capitalist society, "The Decent Society".

The seminar is organised by the Neoliberalism in the Nordics research group and the Departments of the History of Ideas and Science, Uppsala University, the Economic History Department, Uppsala University, and the Saxo Institute for Modern European studies, Copenhagen University. We invite participants from these institutions but will aim to keep a maximum number of 20-25 participants.
