Reminder: Marxism 2010

I am sure readers of Histomat have long registered already for this, but just a quick note to say that the full timetable for Marxism 2010 in London in early July is now online, and looks pretty damn impressive - indeed unparalleled - in terms of the range of meetings and the sheer quantity and quality of what is on offer. It is hard to pick out particular highlights, but I guess mention might be made of Tariq Ali on the perils of Islamophobia, Tony Benn on democracy, Sheila Rowbotham on women's history and a roundtable on the 'idea of communism' with Alex Callinicos, John Holloway and Slavoj Žižek. Also worth noting is the fact that the deadline for submission of abstracts for Historical Materialism London Conference 2010, 'Crisis and Critique'. Thursday 11th november to Sunday 14th november is June 1 - not long away.

Well, obviously there will be the odd meeting that is slightly below par or even frankly disappointing - that goes without saying for such an event with such a high number of meetings...

Hope to meet up at Marxism if not before - though isn't your birthday sometime around then?
