1917 : a revolution against Das Kapital?

Speaker : Humphrey McQueen

23 April 2018, 5.30 for 6pm

Manning Clark House, 11 Tasmania Circle, Forrest

 MCH members, concession and full-time students $10 (non members $15)

BOOK HERE

Responding to Antonio Gramsci’s 1919 suggestion, the talk will weave together a trio of anniversaries:

  • 150 years since the publication of Das Kapital in September 1867
  • the 200th anniversary of the birth of its author, Karl Marx, on 5 May 1818
  •  the centenary of the Bolshevik Revolution, erupting in October 1917.

humphrey-mcqueen[1]Speaker: Humphrey McQueen is a Canberra-based historian and activist at work on yet one more Marxist account of the origins of capital, to be titled The Revolution Inside Capital.
