2010-11 Taft Annual Symposium Keynote Event: Dialog Michael Hardt - Raj Patel

"The Commons: What It Is, How to Reclaim It" A Dialogue and Debate between
Michael Hardt (Duke University) and Raj Patel (UC-Berkeley)

Date: May 12, 2011

Who owns the earth's riches? Radical notions of the Commons suggest that our shared inheritance should be held in common, rather than commodified. In what is sure to be a thought-provoking and timely discussion, theorists Michael Hardt and Raj Patel come together to debate ideas of the Commons.

Introduction by Adrian Parr, Associate Professor of Women's, Gender and
Sexuality Studies (A&S) and Urban Design (DAAP).
