“The Perfect Storm”: A Conversation with Nancy Fraser about Capitalism, Feminism and the Pandemic


In this contribution we present to the readers of “Meta” the slightly edited transcription of an online conversation with Nancy Fraser that took place in April 2021. The text includes introductory sections by Stefano Marino, questions by Anna Preti, Francesca Todeschini, Rolando Vitali and Alessandro Volpi, and replies by Nancy Fraser. The interview is based on a reading of the book Feminism for the 99 Percent: A Manifesto (Verso, London 2019), written by Cinzia Arruzza, Tithi Bhattacharya and Nancy Fraser, but is also focused, more in general, on questions concerning capitalism, social crises, populism, feminism, critical theory and the Covid-19 pandemic.
