ONLY ONE WEEK TO GO!
The inaugural Historical Materialism Australasia 2012 Conference is on next Friday and Saturday in Sydney, featuring a wide range of Marxist scholars and activists (and activist-scholars!) presenting new research on political economy, philosophy, human rights, democracy, history, culture and more. One look at the program will tell you this is shaping up to be a very exciting event.
Among our international speakers we’re very proud to have:
- Peter Thomas, author of the award-winning The Gramscian Moment, lecturer at Brunel University, London, and a member of the Historical Materialism editorial board (pictured). He’ll be delivering the keynote address on Friday, on “The Idea of Communism and Questions of Organisation”
- Sara Farris, lecturer in European Studies at Kings College London. She’ll be speaking “On The Muslim (Women) Question” at the closing plenary on Saturday
