Lectures by Professor David Harvey.

Capital Lectures Transcription and Translation Project

Announcing a new project – the Capital Lectures Transcription and Translation Project. Since first posting the Capital Volume 1 lectures online, many people have contacted the site hoping for subtitles in their native languages. In order to meet this demand, we first need an accurate English transcription of the lectures. We have created a first draft of the English transcription with timecodes via YouTube’s machine transcription service. We need volunteers to correct the machine transcription. After this is complete, volunteer translators will translate the transcript into other languages. After these are complete, they will be uploaded to YouTube’s subtitles service and made available. Can you help get this project started by spending some time correcting the transcription of the English lectures? If so, please join the project here.

Video: A View From Federal Hill Revisited

This video shows David Harvey speaking atop Federal Hill overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor at the opening event of the City From Below conference in March 2009. In this talk, Professor Harvey revisits and updates his famous essay A View from Federal Hill, which appeared in The Baltimore Book and was reprinted in Spaces of Capital. The conference was organized by the Baltimore Development Cooperative, Red Emma’s bookstore, and the Indypendent Reader.

Update on Capital Volume II Course

Professor Harvey taught a semester-long course on Marx’s Capital Volume II (including parts of Volume III) at Union Theological Seminary in the Spring 2011 semester. The class was attended by graduate students from Union Theological Seminary, CUNY Graduate Center, Columbia, Fordham, New York Theological Seminary, New York University, and the Brecht Forum. A series of interviews were filmed of Professor Harvey – four students asked him about the experience of teaching Volume II. Thanks to over 250 small donors to this site, the budget to complete this project has been raised. Now over 55 hours of tape have to be edited. Our film editor will be working over the summer, and we hope to start posting the new videos to this site this Fall.
