Some new publications this Winter
- “Tales from Money’s Utopian Art Crypt: A Visit to the Freeport” online at Public Seminar (coming soon).
- “Commons as Actuality, Ethos, and Horizon” in the edited collection Educational Commons in Theory and Practice from Palgrave Macmillan.
- There is an interview with me about the University of the Phoenix walking tour on finance, gentrification, invasive species and neocolonialism broadcast on KPFA’s Against the Grain. Sadly, this interview excises the contributions of Cassie Thornton – a full interview can be heard here.
- I learned that my article “The uses of financial literacy: Financialization, the radical imagination, and the unpayable debts of settler-colonialism” will be published in November in Cultural Politics (13:3). Meanwhile, you can download a preliminary version at academia.edu

Presently, I’m working on three major projects
- Establishing, at Lakehead University, the The ReImagining Value Action Lab (RiVAL), as part of my duties as Canada Research Chair in Culture, Media and Social Justice. RiVAL will be a collaborative space for social inquiry, a multimedia and social media lab, and a platform for radical ideas. Expect announcements in the Summer of 2017.
- Drafting my next book, tentatively titled “Art after Money, Money after Art: Radical Creative Strategies Against Financialization.”
- Researching my next major project, tentatively titled “Revenge: The Cultural Illogic of Belated Capitalism“
