CFP: Marxist Literary Group Institute on Culture and Society
(03/23/2007; 06/20/07-06/24/07)

The Marxist Literary Group's annual Institute on Culture and Society
(MLG-ICS) will convene this summer in Chicago, June 20-24, on the
campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago. The five-day
Institute will host invited guests (Peter Hitchcock and Walter Benn
Michaels confirmed, others TBA); an intensive reading group on
Capital I led by Nicholas Brown, Richard Daniels, Neil Larsen, and
Ronald Strickland; and consecutive (as opposed to simultaneous)
panels. The organizing committee is now accepting submissions for
panel and paper proposals. As always, any work that engages seriously
with the Marxist tradition will be considered. This year's ICS will
draw its special topic from the occasion of the 200th anniversary of
the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade. Therefore papers and
panels related to this occasion — the intersections of racial and
class solidarity, the legacy of Marxism in Africa, Black radicalism
in North America, world-systems and other economic accounts of the
slave trade and its abolition, Marxism in Caribbean letters, Left
responses to the reparations debate, and so on — are especially
welcome. Selected papers will be published in the online journal
_mediations_. Paper abstracts should be less than 500 words. Panel
proposals should include presenters' names, affiliations, paper
titles, and abstracts. Please send general submissions to and submissions related to this year's special topic
to by March 23, 2007.
