Esther Leslie

Esther Leslie is Professor of Political Aesthetics at Birkbeck. Born into a Trotskyist family, she absorbed Dunayevskaya, Lenin and CLR James ab initio.  Her teenage years were offered up to x-ntrix anarchism, punk, the Anti-Nazi League and left groupuscules. German-Jewish ancestry kindled scrutiny of German thought and praxis, its hope and horror, from Marx to Nazism. She ditched her left group of choice, which had long disappointed her for its cultural conservatism and unimaginativeness, shortly before it imploded in the 2010s.
