Difference in ‘The End of History’

19 Apr '17 6.30 pm

With capitalism’s defeat of Communism in 1989, history was said to have ended. At last, the world had arrived in its predestination of free market capitalism, parliamentary democracy, and humanitarian ethics. The new international community — ‘humanity’ — charged racial, national, and class differences with the crimes of the 20th century, placing these categories in the dustbin of history. Yet since the fall of the Berlin Wall, we have witnessed the acceleration of wealth inequality between the 1% and the rest, nationalisms against cross-border migratory flows, as well as racial and communal violence within and across nation-states. What explains the persistence of difference in the 'end of history'? In this talk, Rohit Goel uses the example of postwar Lebanon to attempt an answer, employing a Marxian-Lacanian framework to analyze how race, nation, and class work in our contemporary world.
