Marx and Marxism 2019: Marxism without taboos - confronting oppressions


In this second decade of the 21st century, we witness the growth of political and social movements guided by ultraconservative perspectives, with strong sexist, racist, LGBT-phobic, and xenophobic speech and violence. On the other hand, the emergence of powerful social movements in defence of the rights of such groups highlights the importance of their agenda to critical thinking and for contemporary political projects. Would Marx and the Marxist traditions have significant contributions to the discussion of oppression?


The International Colloquium Marx and Marxism 2019 Marxism without taboos: confronting oppressions invites participants to reflect on questions of theoretical and/or historical order relative to these themes, from different angles but unified by the Marxist theoretical framework. Nine thematic axes guide the call for papers:

1. Theory of value and social antagonism

2. Education, class, and class struggle

3. Marxism and revolutions: theory and history

4. Culture, art, and emancipation

5. State, politics, and oppression

6. Imperialism, the national question, and migrations

7. Race and Marxism

8. Gender, sexuality, and Marxism

9. Race, gender and class on pre-capitalist societies
