How to participate:
1. Register an account on the forum. If you are having difficulty doing this, please use the contact form below.
2. The thread will be unlocked around two weeks after the paper is selected for dialogue. For Blair's paper, this thread will be unlocked on June 1, 2017. This gap between post and dialogue will give everyone time to read and think about the publication.
3. Make a contribution – be it a comment, question or critique. A dialogue develops, and we let it run its course. If the discussion is substantial enough, its main participants can edit it into a Working Paper on Capital as Power and post it on http://www.capitalaspower.com/category/working-papers/
(for an example of such edited dialogue, see “Imperialism and Financialism: An Exchange” http://bnarchives.yorku.ca/278/
). The resulting paper can then be titled “(Original title): A Dialogue” and submitted to the journal where the publication originally appeared (NPE in this case), or to any other journal if the focus is a book.
