Karl Marx

THE KARL MARX WALKING TOUR

The Karl Marx Walking Tour has been operating for 2 years; our guides are great communicators and qualified researchers. We organise walking tours, talks and debates on the life and ideas of Karl Marx that can be of particular interest for participants to the Historical Materialism conference.
This is an opportunity to see London from a different angle, and to visit the places in Soho in which Marx lived, studied and fought.

The walking tour lasts 2-2.5 hours and can take place any day. It starts at Piccadilly Circus and ends inside the British Museum.

There will be a special Historical Materialism Conference Karl Marx Walk on Thursday 6 November, at 10 am

Meeting point is at Piccadilly in front of Criterion Theatre, online booking is essential http://www.marxwalks.com

More details are on our website http://www.MarxWalks.com

RETHINKING THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Sussex Political Marxism (PM) Meeting.

Michael Andrew Žmolek on ‘Rethinking the Industrial Revolution’

New PM Meeting

Thursday, 6th of November

10h00-12h00

Room: (ARTS C 333)

Michael Andrew Žmolek will be presenting his book Rethinking the Industrial Revolution: Five Centuries of Transition from Agrarian to Industrial Capitalism in England (Brill, 2013 / Haymarket, 2014).

The book offers the first in-depth study of the evolution of English manufacturing from the feudal and early modern periods within the context of the development of agrarian capitalism. With an emphasis on the relationship between Parliament and working Britons, this work challenges readers to ‘rethink’ the common perception of the role of the state in the first industrial revolution as essentially passive. The work chronicles how a long train of struggles led by artisans resisting efforts by employers to transform production along capitalist lines, prompted employers to appeal to the state to suppress this resistance by coercion.

A chapter of the book will serve as basis for discussion.

Those interested, can contact Samuel Knafo (s.knafo@sussex.ac.uk) to get a copy of it.

The meeting will be held in Arts C 333.
