Leftovers Virtual: Reading Marx and Marxism in the Age of Uprisings and Pandemics

Haymarket Books

Leftovers is proud to present a virtual panel, following in the theme of our well-received 2019 panel, on reading Marx and classical Marxist theory in the context of the current conjuncture. Far from a mere detached “return to Marx”, Leftovers seeks to recuperate and renovate our analysis by way of revisiting bedrock communist praxis. Among our papers are a two part engagement on Marx’s work on the Jewish question, followed by a reconceptualization of Marx’s concept of “So Called Primitive Accumulation”. Leftovers panelists all share a queer socialist-feminist reading of the Marxist tradition, focusing on a unitary analysis and avoiding class reductionism. We are all of the belief that the popular struggles of today, from the summer’s international multiracial uprising against police murder to the struggles of Indigenous people and beyond, are part and parcel of the class struggle. Thus, in propagating our readings of the Marxist tradition, we aim at a first step of providing readings relevant to the 21st century.
