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.
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.
