We Are the Crisis

ONLINE UNIVERSITY OF THE LEFT

Why a Marxist School?

Karl Marx’s ideas are a common touchstone for many people working for change.  His historical materialism, his many contributions to political economy and class analysis, all continue to serve his core values–the self-emancipation of the working class and a vision of a classless society.  There are naturally many trends in Marxism that have developed over the years, and new ones are on the rise today.  All of them and others who want to see this project succeed are welcome here.

Founder: Carl Davidson

Initial Core Group: Linda Alcoff, Mark Alper, Gar Alperovitz, Burton Lee Artz, Salvatore Babones, Rose Brewer, Renate Bridenthal, Roderick Bush, Dominique Caouette, Orlando Caracas, Dana Cloud, Michael Duff, Jon Gobeil, Larry Hanley, Jerry Harris, Richard Huggins, David Fryett, Mark Johnson, Timothy Johnson, Athina Karatzogianni, Gavin Kitching, Lauren Langman, Marnia Lazreg, Kathy McAfee, Peter Mclaren, Bharat Mehra, Hannah Miyamoto, Gregory Morales, Joshua Morris, Kathleen Newman, Jonathan Nitzan, Juan Pablo Ochoa, Tom O’Donnell, Teresa Pac, William Pelz, Sanjay Perera, Frank Phelan, Garry Potter, Melvin Rothenberg, Saskia Sassen, Ellen Schwartz, Justin Schwartz, David Schwartzman, David Schweickart, Navin Singh, Geoffrey Skoll, William Tabb, Harry Targ, Bharat Thakkar, Joseph Varga, Rob Watts, Richard Wolff.

“This is a radical education and left unity project. All on the left willing to work cooperatively for its success are invited to join and lend a hand” — CARL DAVIDSON

CAPITAL AS POWER

Call for Papers on the subject of “Capital as Power”

The present global crisis opens the door for theoretical alternatives. The two main paradigms of capital accumulation – the neoclassical utility theory of value and the Marxist labour theory of value – are in disarray. Many leading neo-classicists now concede that their “world is broken” and that their utilitarian “pillars of faith” have collapsed. Marxists have been content to see these confessions, but they remain unable to offer a convincing alternative based on labour values. These failures call for a new theoretical, methodological and empirical framework for rethinking capitalist valuation and accumulation – a framework based not on utility or labour time, but on power.

We are calling for paper presentations to be organized in several related panels under the general heading of “Capital as Power.” The papers can be theoretical, methodological or empirical, and they can examine any aspect of capital as power. The panels will be included as part of the upcoming “Rethinking Marxism” Conference, to be held on November 5-8, 2009, at the University of Amherst Massachusetts.

http://rethinkingmarxism.org/conf/index.php/gala/NewMarxianTimes

If you wish to present a paper on one of these panels, please write to Jonathan Nitzan (nitzan@yorku.ca ). The conference registration deadline is August 1, 2009. In order to set up our panels in a timely fashion, we request your proposal (title and a 200 word abstract) to be sent in to Nitzan by June 1, 2009.

Best wishes,
Shimshon Bichler and Jonathan Nitzan
