Description/Abstract of your Event: 

As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx?s birth this year, it is important to view his critique of capitalism in light of contemporary debates and currents of radical thought, the better to connect theory to practice. This panel will link Marx to the critical theory and socialist humanist schools of thought, emphasizing the timeliness of his revolutionary critique of capitalism as a system of domination, exploitation, and alienation that is rooted in class and gender as well as class oppression. We will also discuss how to overcome the economic, political, and cultural domination of capitalism, at a time when the evolution of that system in the Trump era has placed our very survival in question.
