Video Lecture on Theory from the South

Or, how Euro-America is Evolving Toward Africa

In this video Jean Comaroff and John Comaroff discussed their book Theory from the South, touching on some of their life long themes. The post 2008 economic crash caused Northern states to experience racial tension, political corruption and the kinds of ailments associated with the “global South”. The couple draw on their long experience of living in Africa to address a range of familiar themes – democracy, national borders, labour and capital and multiculturalism.
