Marxism Against Postmodernism in Educational Theory

MARXISM MATTERS

One-Day Conference

Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies

University of Sunderland

Tuesday 17th April 2012

Confirmed keynote speakers: Martin Barker and Ros Brunt.

As the economy has become increasingly named in public debate as the capitalist economy and conventional explanations of the economic crisis and its various social and cultural manifestations seem less and less convincing, Marxism has once again become visible as a viable mode of critical analysis. The aim of the conference is to revive interest in Marxism in work in film, media and cultural studies.  The conference will include papers on ‘race’ and social class, ESPN, the journalism of Marx and Engels, Christianity, the cuts, the Black Panthers, rational optimism, Media and Cultural Studies, social class, hip hop, the current crisis, Batman, Jazz, Treasure Island, Godard, digital Marx.

£60 for full-time staff

£30 for students and part-time staff
