How does the left move forward today? Where do we find resources not just for hope or survival but advance and revolution? Communist theorist Jodi Dean considers the end of the left political imaginary that accompanied the dark years of neoliberalism and the turn toward more solidaristic forms of association that can strategize, scale, and endure.
Jodi Dean holds the Harter Chair in the Humanities and Social Sciences at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She is the author or editor of twelve books, including Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies (Duke, 2009), Blog Theory (Polity, 2010), The Communist Horizon (Verso, 2012), and Crowds and Party (Verso, 2016).
