ConferenceMarx Nu!
LocationRoskilde Universitet
OtherLast year, the Danish Society for Marxist Studies (Selskab for Marxistiske Studier) held its first annual conference “Marx Now! 2016” at Aarhus University. It was clear that the so-called ‘Marxist turn’ has also taken hold at the Danish universities. The interest in Marx, the Marxist tradition, and other critical research traditions is growing amongst researchers and students as evidenced by the many presentations and participants<br/><br/>Society for Marxist Studies is a part of this development and will continue to contribute in 2017!<br/><br/>We therefore invite all critical researchers and students to participate in and contribute to the conference Marx Now! 2017 at Roskilde University, Denmark, on September 1-2 2017.<br/><br/>The aim of the annual conference is to create an academic fixture for critical research at Danish universities. The term “Marxist” should therefore be understood in the broadest and most inclusive manner, so as to include, for instance, those traditions and thinkers that on the periphery of the Marxist tradition, address it, or have something interesting to say about it. The decisive factor is whether they display an emancipatory impulse and critical tendency – and not whether they pledge allegiance to a specific thinker or established canon.<br/><br/>2017 is a year of anniversaries: it has been 150 years since Karl Marx published the first volume of Das Kapital, it is 100 years since revolutionaries seized power in Russia, and it is 100 years since Denmark sold the Danish West Indies to the USA. We are highly interested in presentations addressing these topics.<br/><br/>However, we are also very interested in other topics, and topics for presentations might include social movements, right-wing populism, neoliberalism, workers’ movements, anti-colonial struggles, globalization, climate change, racism, media, class analyses, sexism, ideology critique, art, literature, and revolution.<br/><br/>Send your abstract of 200-300 words to info@marxistiskestudier.com before July 1. Presentations can be in Danish or English.<br/><br/>Society for Marxist Studies (SMS) is a scientific organisation dedicated to promoting research in and inspired by Marx and the entire tradition of thought, which springs from his theories. “Marxist” should thus be understood in the broadest possible sense. SMS does not adhere to any particular theoretical or political position. The society holds an annual conference and aims to transcend the narrow disciplinary boundaries of academia, which never could contain Marxism. <br/>
