Marxian Cartographies: Mapping/Re-drawing the Trace

Thursday, February 16, 2012 - 1:54pm
Anthony C. Cooke/The Marxist Literary Group

This panel will consider Marxism in all of its various manifestations over time, as well as attempts to imagine how it might travel and take on new shapes in the future. How has Marxism traveled, via fiction, poetry, or as an ideology, over time? What sort of geographical or theoretical traces has it left behind, particularly where it is proclaimed that we are "beyond" Marxism? Does memory, whether in the present or as hope for the future, play a role? Is it possible to construct an atlas of Marxism? Can one claim Marxism in any of its forms (Post-Marxism, New Historicism, and so on) in an era of increasing corporatization of the academy?

Making Sense Of: Suicide

Saturday 10th November – Monday 12th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call For Papers:
\Suicide, the deliberate and intentional act of ending one's life, is an assault on our ideas of what living is about. Whether we believe that we have the right to end our own life because we no longer wish to live, or that suicide is never morally permissible, the fact that people can arrange their deaths and that some do, challenges us to think about the nature of life, and of death.
