KEVIN ANDERSON IN GLASGOW

Joint Seminar: Centre for the Study if Socialist Theory and Movements together with Sociology, University of Glasgow

Kevin Anderson (University of California) who will speak about Marx on the Margins. He will give his talk in 915 (former T315) Adam Smith Building, Bute Gardens, University of Glasgow, on Tuesday Nov 9th, at 5 – 6.30pm.

Prof Anderson writes that he will discuss Marx as a theorist of ethnicity, “race” and migration.

“Marx expended considerable time and energy on the analysis of non-Western societies, as well as race, ethnicity, and nationalism in Europe and N. America. While some of these writings show a problematically unilinear perspective and  traces of ethnocentrism, Marx’s overall trajectory was toward a critique of national, ethnic, and colonial oppression and toward an appreciation of resistance movements in these spheres.”

(Kevin B. Anderson is a Professor of Sociology, Political Science, and Feminist Studies at University of California, Santa Barbara. He has worked in social and political theory, especially Marx, Hegel, the Frankfurt School, Foucault, and the Orientalism debate. His most recent books are Foucault and the Iranian Revolution (with Janet Afary, 2005) and Marx at the Margins (2010), and earlier, the Rosa Luxemburg Reader (2004) and Lenin, Hegel, and Western Marxism (1995). His current projects include a book on Theoretical Wars over the Middle East and co-editing a volume of the Marx-Engels Gesamtausgabe (MEGA).
