Abstract:

Dealing adequately with themes as fundamental as ‘economy’ and ‘class’ takes incredibly systematic theoretical work. This complexity is compounded when adding in issues of changing historical context, contemporary social consequence and intersecting ontological formations – issues that writers associated with Arena have over the last fifty years sought to think through with considerable intensity. With these demands, adequately theorizing economy and class becomes a massive task. It needs to draw upon different disciplines, from anthropology and cultural theory to political economy, economic history and contemporary financial analysis.
