Come along to the first SWSS meeting of term!
Monday 8th October // 7pm
Erasmus Room, Queens' College
Why Marx Was Right
with Alex Callincos (King's College London, author The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx)
Karl Marx is one of a handful of people who
fundamentally changed the way we see the world. His ideas have always
been controversial and misunderstood. Today’s world has been rocked by
major capitalist crises, revolutions and revolts from the Arab Spring to
the Occupy Wall Street movement. Alex Callinicos is Professor of
European Studies at King’s College University and the author of Bonfire
of Illusions: The Twin Crises of the Liberal World and The Revolutionary
Ideas of Karl Marx. He will be discussing Marx’s ideas and explaining
why, ultimately, Marx was right.
Meeting will take place in the
Erasmus Room of Queen's college, access via the Visitor's entrance on
Queen's Lane. Through the courtyard, upstairs. There will be signs
giving directions to the room.
