ANNUAL REVIEW OF CRITICAL PSYCHOLOGY

Issue 9: Marxism and Psychology

This issue of the Annual Review of Critical Psychology (ARCP) explores issues that emerge at the intersection of Marxist scholarship and psychological practice. Given the ongoing global financial crisis, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on the role that modern psychological research and practice play both in reproducing and in legitimizing one of the dominant features of modern society. We hope that the articles in this issue will persuade scholars, students, and activists that Marxism remains a potent tool for interrogating the economic and political foundations of modern psychology. It should be noted that the papers included in this issue were originally presented at the first Marxism and Psychology Conference held at theUniversityofPrince Edward Islandin August of 2010.

Invitation to the Second Marxism and Psychology Conference

On behalf of the organising committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the *Second Marxism & Psychology Conference*, which will be held from 9 to 12 August 2012, at the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, located in Morelia, Michoacán, Western Mexico. Like the first conference in Prince Edward Island, Canada, this second conference aims at bringing activists, students and scholars together to discuss exciting issues at the intersection of Marxism and Psychology.

As contemporary psychology goes through these times of crisis, revolts and protests around the world, we need to reflect again on the significance of Marxism for psychological scholarship and practice. We know that different fields of psychology have already been permeated, questioned, challenged and concerned by Marxist theory and practice during the last century. Currently several scholars and activists recognize the potential for Marxism to transform psychology. A number of them acknowledge the increasing role of Marxist theory and practice in their scientific pursuits and political activities. And many scholars make research on the historical and current positions in the intersection of Marxism with psychology. At present, however, there still are relatively few opportunities for all
these people to exchange their findings and their views on this essential topic.

We believe that this *Second Marxism & Psychology Conference* will be a unique intellectual forum to encounter different and often competing views on Marxism from the different fields of psychology and other disciplines, as well as an excellent opportunity for scholars and activists to meet again and introduce a new generation of psychologists to the Marxist perspective

Conference topic areas include: Marxist Psychology, Marxism and Educational Psychology, Marxism and Clinical Psychology, Marxism and Social Psychology, Marxism and Critical Psychology, Marxism and Psychoanalysis; Marxism, Humanism and Humanistic Psychology; Marxism, Feminism and Psychology; Marxism, Liberation Psychology and Community Psychology; Activity Theory and Cultural Historical Psychology.

The site of the conference, the city of *Morelia*, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its well preserved colonial buildings and layout of the historic center. The Mexican Federal Government lists 1,113 old buildings having historical value, including the impressive cathedral, 4 important monasteries, 3 convents, 4 old colleges, many large churches and palaces, and some buildings of the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, the oldest institution of higher education in the New World, founded in 1540 by Vasco de Quiroga. Also in Morelia is the first music conservatory in the Americas, the Conservatorio de las Rosas, established in 1734.

Sincerely,
David Pavón Cuéllar and Jorge Mario Flores Osorio
