LONDON SEMINAR ON CONTEMPORARY MARXIST THEORY

The global economic and financial crisis has witnessed a deepening of interest in different forms of critical and radical thought and practice. This seminar will explore the new perspectives that have been opened up by interventions of contemporary Marxist theory in this political and theoretical conjuncture. It involves collaboration among Marxist scholars based in several London universities, including Brunel University, King’s College London, and the School of Oriental and African Studies. Guest speakers – from both Britain and abroad – will include a wide range of thinkers engaging with many different elements of the various Marxist traditions, as well as with diverse problems and topics. The aim of the seminar is to promote fruitful debate and to contribute to the development of more robust Marxist 
analysis. It is open to all.

  1. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am an aspiring academic, who will be studying in London during the spring semester (January until May). I would like to enquire about the date and times of upcoming events; I would love to get involved and would love to get involved in the Marxist climate of London.
