David Harvey in Words & Pictures

I bet that silly notion of the "ivory tower" would disappear if all academic talks had a real-time cartoon accompaniment, like this one starring the Marxist critic David Harvey. Heck, maybe we should lobby Fox for a Sunday night animated series based on his work. The show could even feature guest appearances by Judith Butler, Slavoj Zizek, and Toni Negri.

Hi Ted,

First time commenting... Thanks for the link. What an amazing piece of animation. The bit about home owners not being inclined to strike because of their debt obligations is incredibly interesting! I might show this to my class in September.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad you're enjoying the blog. The Harvey animation was pretty amazing, wasn't it?
