The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an annual gathering of scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners to exchange ideas and nurture groundbreaking research. This year’s Congress is being held at Concordia University in Montreal, with “connected understanding” as its overriding theme.
Alejandra Roncallo is an instructor of Politics and Public Administration at York University’s Glendon College. Her lecture at the Congress on May 31st asserted the “fourth moment of a new world order”, and explained the uniqueness of present-day life in the context of monumental social and political factors — from Obama, to the environment, to a shift in capitalist accumulation.
This lecture was recorded by Tariq Jeeroburkhan.
