The Bicentenary of Marx’s Birth
2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. Marx Memorial Library, MML, http://www.marx-memorial-library.org/, will be seeking to occupy a leading position in organising and publicising activities in the UK, with a special emphasis on Marx’s continuing relevance for activism and scholarship. MML is uniquely placed to do this. It has a proud history as a centre for the study of Marxism; for over eighty years, since its foundation in 1933, promoting an understanding of the science of Marxism has been at the heart of the Library’s activities.
Among other things, such as educational workshops through the year, MML will be organising a two-day Conference of its own on May 5th and 6th, 2018, which coincides with the date of Marx’s birth itself. This will involve both plenaries and workshops.
You may be preparing activity of your own for the bicentenary, a special issue of a journal or theme for a conference for example. Please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know, and we would also place a link on our website to your own initiatives (and would welcome your doing the same for us).
