The Center for the Study of Culture, Technology and Work at the Graduate Center fosters connections between intellectuals and activists, and translates theoretical and conceptual work into practice.

Toward this end, the Center has sponsored conferences, colloquia, and workshops in diverse areas, including: the crisis of urbanism; globalization and resistance movements; education; technology (technoscience); and the future of work.

In addition to our continuing research and ongoing seminars and conferences, the Center currently sponsors Situations: Project of the Radical Imagination, a journal initiated to address the lapse of radical imagination in both left theory and in popular consciousness. The Center also serves as the host to the staff of the Left Forum, the largest annual conference of the left within the United States.
