CFP: The Digital Futures of Marxism

The Marxist Literary Group
South Atlantic Modern Language Association Annual Convention
November 4-6, 2011
Atlanta, GA

This panel will consider the force of digitization and new social media on Marxist theory and practice as well as, conversely, the force of Marxism on digital media theory and practice. What are the challenges, opportunities, and limits of the new social media in transforming the revolutionary subjects and sites of recent social movements, emergent multitudes, and virtual communities that gather strength from and part company with Marxism? How do digital archives, digital scholarship, and digital aesthetic practices in the age of hyper-capitalism advance and constrain the promise of a Marxist future to come?

By June 29, 2011, please send 250- to 300-word abstracts to Walter Kalaidjian, Emory University, wkalaid@emory.edu

The deadline may be extended. Email for details:
