Couze Venn was Professor Emeritus in the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths and Associate Research Fellow at the University of Johannesburg. He was also a managing editor of Theory, Culture & Society, and one of the editors of Body & Society. His current research concerns the search for postcapitalist alternatives to neoliberal capitalism in the context of converging crises affecting economies, climate, essential resources, the quality of the environment, and growing inequalities. In the 1970s he was a founding member of the journal Ideology & Consciousness, whose project was the critique of positivist psychological sciences and to disseminate the work of Michel Foucault and 'French Theory' generally as part of establishing alternative approaches for theorising subjectivity and for analysing power.
