Dear friends, We are fast approaching the second Historical Materialism Conference to be held at York University in Toronto.

Our plenary speakers include Terry Eagleton, Andrea Smith, Vijay Prashad, Johanna Brenner, Aziz Choudry, Dorothy Smith, Kevin Anderson, and David McNally, among others. Plenary topics include “Marx and the Global South,” “Global Crisis, Working Class Households and Migrant Labour,” “Capitalism, Race and Colonialism,” and “Is Marxism a Theodicy?” We will also be running a four-part course on Marx’s Capital. Details on registration, accommodation and the conference program are available at www.yorku.ca/hmyork.
