Karl Marx's Critique of Political Economy and the Global Crisis Today Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Publication of Capital

Karl Marx was simultaneously one of the founders and one of the most important critics of the modern social sciences. All of the social sciences and humanities today draw widely from his work. At the core of Marx's published work is his analysis of capitalism: Volume one of Capital, published in 1867. Capital defined his labor theory of value, which Marx drew from Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and the whole of classical political economy. This symposium draws together leading scholars from all over the world who have been applying the Marxian analytical apparatus -- including his labor theory of value -- to decipher and understand the current global economic and political crisis.

Confirmed plenary speakers include: 

David Harvey, distinguished professor, The Graduate Center, CUNY

Silvia Federici, professor emerita, Hofstra University

Harry Cleaver, professor emeritus, University of Texas at Austin.
