Raya Dunayevskaya


Marxist-Humanist Initiative is hosting a screening and discussion of a new documentary on the ideas of Raya Dunayevskaya this Thursday night in NYC. Details are below. 

Film and Discussion:– THURSDAY JUNE 28, 6:30 TO 9:00 P.M.


Marxist-Humanist Initiative will screen and discuss a new documentary film about the ideas of the philosopher, activist, and feminist who developed Marxist-Humanism over much of the last century.

This month marks the 25th anniversary of her death. The film’s title and content follow from Dunayevskaya’s declaration that her biography ‘is the biography of an idea’.

The film emphasizes how contemporary her ideas remain today.

Kevin Anderson


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).

Socialism and Hope




ANNOUNCEMENT IN ENGLISH (August 2010): To Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Publication of the Review Socialisme ou Barbarie. Organe de Critique et d’Orientation Révolutionnaire (S. ou B.).

You will find now on this website a list of texts also from the seventh issue of the review, with each text title paired with a hyperlink leading to a .pdf scan. These scans have been performed on a used copy purchased at a secondhand bookseller. We are thus putting them at the disposal of everyone (workers, students, activists, researchers, etc.) in order to fill an obvious publication void. This scanner project, which will eventually include all S. ou B. issues, is conceived without any desire to compete with anyone and is carried out by a collective of individuals and groups from several European countries as well as from North, Central, and South America.
