POLSIS Marxist and Radical Politics Study Group 2012-13

15 Feb

We are pleased to launch this website for the POLSIS Marxist and Radical Politics Study Group, which has been in existence (on and off) for 5 years. We are adjusting the format slightly, in particular to include more invited speakers, research seminars, and research workshops, and thereby broaden our focus beyond being solely a reading group (although this remains the core of our activities). All are welcome to join in – on either a regular or ad hoc basis.

The schedule over the coming months is as follows, although we are working on a number of events to fit into the ‘gap’ weeks in the schedule – more details to follow:
