Ad for historical materialism


historical materialism research in critical marxist theory

HISTORICAL MATERIALISM is a new journal which seeks to play a part in the recovery and renewal of the critical and explanatory potential of classical Marxism. It will provide a forum for:

· The reappropriation and refinement of the classical Marxist tradition for emancipatory purposes.

· A genuine and open dialogue between individuals working in different traditions of Marxism.

· Interdisciplinary debate and communication on an international scale between graduates, researchers and academics.

HISTORICAL MATERIALISM wishes to encourage the new generation of Marxists. The advisory editors who support the project and will actively engage with this emergent intellectual community include:

Robert Albritton, Elmar Altvater, Chris Arthur, Jairus Banaji, Roy Bhaskar, Werner Bonefeld, Robert Brenner, Simon Bromley, Peter Burnham, Guglielmo Carchedi, Andrew Chitty, Simon Clarke, Andrew Collier, George Comninel, Geoffrey de Ste.
