Show Notes

Acid Horizon continue their conversation with the folks over at Mimbres School by sitting down with Sean Capener, who'll be teaching their "History of Damnation" course. We read Sean's "On the Fall of the Angels: Economic Theology After the Middle Passage". In this paper, Sean shows how St Anselm's Christian theories about the economy of salvation and Man's debt to God can inform a critical view towards our own narratives about debt and credit under racial capitalism through the mediation of figures in contemporary Black Studies such as Saidiya Hartman and Fred Moten.
