CFP: Marxism and Africa, Africa and Marxism (03/16/2007; MLG-ICS 2007)

Proposed for the Institute on Culture and Society (sponsored by the
Marxist Literary Group), June 20-24, Chicago. This panel seeks to
open up a line of questioning regarding “Marxism and Africa, Africa
and Marxism.” How might one construct a genealogy of African Marxism?
How has Marxism influenced political, cultural, and theoretical
developments on the continent? How have political, cultural, and
theoretical developments in Africa shaped Marxism itself? Is Marxism
useful for understanding recent developments on the continent? What
is the future of Marxism in Africa? Send abstracts (500 words or
less) to Nicholas Brown at cola_at_uic.edu by March 16, 2007.
