In 1960, Daniel Bell pronounced the end of ideology. With the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1989, Western pundits pronounced the triumph of capitalism and the end of history. But capitalism continues to produce bubbles, busts, and deepening recessions, culminating the Great Recession of 2008, and counting. People have responded with protests and alternatives in some countries. But throughout the Western world we seem to confront an ideological impasse to getting beyond capitalism. What is to be done to break this impasse? Papers on ideas for anti-ideology actions are invited.
This is a joint session co-sponsored by the Society for Socialist Studies.
