Professor Pritam Singh has recently been awarded distinguished Professor Emeritus status. Pritam has been part of the Oxford Brookes Business School since 1988 and to mark the occasion we would like to invite you all to attend his lecture on 5th December: Sustainability implications of spatial shift in global capitalism: An eco-socialist perspective.

This lecture will explore the meaning and usefulness of spatial shift in understanding the key change taking place in global capitalism. Looking at the decline of old capitalist economies and the rise of emerging capitalist economies, Professor Pritam Singh will provide empirical evidence to demonstrate this shift and will examine the ecological sustainability implications of this shift. He will focus on the eco-socialist vision as an alternative to both, capitalism and the old style ‘productivist’ socialism.

Following the lecture, drinks and nibbles will be served at an informal reception. We hope that as many of you as possible can join us to make this a memorable event.
If you are interested in attending, please register here by Friday 30 November.
