The Conference of Socialist Economists (CSE) is an international, democratic membership organisation committed to developing a materialist critique of capitalism, unconstrained by conventional academic divisions between subjects. CSE has organised and supported conferences and seminars and publishes the Sage journal Capital & Class three times a year.

The CSE South Group is a new network of researchers and activists mirroring the CSE Transpennine Group which runs across the north of Britain initiated by Capital and Class Editorial Board members Stuart Shields and Greig Charnock. Members will be organising workshops where people present work and hold discussions on topics that concern the CSE and our journal.

Martin Upchurch will present 'Towards the New Workplace Dystopia' at this event. Owen Worth, Managing Editor for Capital & Class will speak about 'The Crisis of Capital', and Phoebe Moore, Editorial Board member for Capital & Class will speak about 'Cognitive Capitalism and the Quantified Worker'.

We will hold a Roundtable called 'Contemporary Conditions of Capital' where we will discuss and debate issues in contemporary conditions of capital including mental health and work, global production networks, commodification of education, safety at work, migration and much more. Speakers on the roundtable will include Eleonore Kofman, who has published extensively on gender and migration and who will speak about households and control of capital and labour; Peter Hough, author of 'Workplace Insecurity, The Case for Global Governance'; Elizabeth Cotton who has
written Global Unions, Global Business with Richard Croucher; and Clive Boddy, author of Corporate Psychopaths: Organisational Destroyers.

If you come along to events you will have the chance to meet individuals on the Capital & Class Editorial Board and a wide range of other researchers and activists. This will be the first of many workshops run by participants in the CSE South Group. These events will encourage networking across activists, trade unionists, newer researchers and the established cadre who can learn from one another, think together and act in solidarity toward a transformed world.
