For the last several weeks, we have focused on a theoretical tradition that calls attention to moments of crisis. For Marxism, crisis times are moments of re-articulation in which the whole of society is open to the possibility of change. Block and Omi & Winant highlight some of the concrete mechanisms through which change can occur as well as the limits of change — the way in which concession are often coopted by dominant classes and used to their benefit. For Block, in crisis times subordinate groups can effectively leverage power against the State because of the suspension of the structural limits placed on State Managers. For Omi and Winant, crisis times open up space for a more sustained War of Position by subordinate racialized groups. How might these theorist explain or respond to the articles below? How do they helps us make sense of the politics of race in times of crisis?
