Topic areas


Aside from contributions which seek to explore individual aspects of
the Marxist body of work, we would also be happy to accept suggestions
dealing with the following themes:
- Polemic or: Criticism as the mind of passion
- History as material: from historical works to historical teleology
- Criticism of the political economy and postfordian means of production
- Theory and politics: from The Communist Manifesto to the Communist Party
(China France...)
- The promise of 1917 and The Gulag Archipelago

The academic conference serves primarily as a platform for doctoral candidates
from all sponsorship organisations for academic talent, and also for (young-)
academics from all disciplines, who are involved in researching Marx's works
and/or Marxism, as well as the problems stemming from such. Presentations
based on dissertations or research projects which are still in progress are both
possible and welcome. We invite any groups of people, from either inside
Germany or elsewhere, who feel they match this description, to take part with
their contribution.
We ask for an abstract (of maximum 500 words) and a short academic
Curriculum Vitae to be sent, by no later than the 19th November 2017, to
The abstract should contain the following information:
- Title of the contribution and academic discipline(s)
- Research question and findings
- Socio-political relevance
- Contact information
You will receive a reply regarding the received abstract by the 17th December
2017. We will aim to publish a selection of the contributions. A presentation/
abstract is not a prerequisite for participation in the conference. A letter of
motivation indicating your interest in participation and specialist expertise is,
however, requested. The Hans-Böckler-Foundation will cover all travelcatering- and accommodation expenses. There is no registration fee.
