Global Marxism: Rethinking Marxist Thought in a Counter-Revolutionary Age

This group connects scholars across the (broadly-defined) Marxist tradition, including anti-fascism, anti-imperialism, critical race theory, and cultural studies. Our members’ areas of expertise and inquiry include Hindu nationalism in India, the current economic crisis in Sri Lanka, WWI and political thought, Yiddish culture in the Soviet Union, among others. These themes carry historical import as well as immense significance today, as seen in many urgent issues pertaining to war, gender and reproductive justice, and the resurgent far-right.
