What would the convergence of the labour movement and the ecology movements that Raymond Williams called for in 1984 look like today and what are the blockages that need to be overcome? How can we ground contemporary eco-socialism in anti-imperialist, anti-racist and feminist as well as class struggles? We will explore these questions through reading texts from Williams, Mies, Jason W. Moore, Raj Patel and Andreas Malm.
