Call for Papers “Marx2013 Conference” 19–20 October 2013, Stockholm

Call for Papers

marx2013: Class Crisis Critique Capitalism
Conference 19–20 October 2013, ABF-huset, Stockholm, Sweden

Since the financial crisis in 2008, Karl Marx’ analysis of society have been discussed in wider circles, even amongst mainstream economists, in order to grasp the crisis of the global economy. What more can Marx’ analysis and social critique contribute with, if we want to understand contemporary society also in other senses? At the conference marx2013, distinguished international scholars discuss about the importance of Marx’ theories to understand today’s development of society, economy and culture, focusing concepts as class, crisis, critique and capitalism.

Marx2013 will take place in the borderland between academy and activism. Radical politics have always emanated from and interacted with radical philosophy and social science. For the last thirty years, radical social science has often been characterized by theories (post-colonial, Foucault, queer, gender, and cultural studies) other than the previously leading tradition based on Marx’ and Marxist theories. These more recent theories have often been developed out of a criticism of Marxism and have provided important contributions. In the light of this, marx2013 raises the question about the possibility of a more radical critique today.

At marx2013, we will organize academic sessions where researchers can present papers regarding the main themes of the conference.

The deadline for submitting a paper is 26 August 2013 (the deadline have been extended). Abstracts for papers should be submitted to the organizer of the relevant session. The session organizers will let each applicant know if their papers have been accepted.

Below, you find a list with the sessions to which you can send paper proposals. More information about the sessions, you will find using the links after each session in the list. If you don’t find any sessions with a proper theme for the paper you want to present, just send it directly to our e-mail:  info@marx2013.com

It is not necessary to register to the conference if you only want to listen to the lectures and seminars. But feel free to mark that you are “attending” on our Facebook event, which will help us to estimate how many participants there will be.

The conference will start on Saturday 19 October at 09:00 and end on Sunday 20 October at 16:00, and will be held at ABF-huset, at Sveavägen 41 in Stockholm. More information about the conference will soon be available on this webpage.
