Marxian Analysis of Society, Schools and Education SIG 157
SIG Purpose
The Marxian SIG aims to develop a community of scholars and activists who engage a Marxist analysis to educational and related social problems. The current and growing understanding that capitalism is a racist and sexist system of class relations offers the opportunity to introduce Marx’s extensive body of work and brilliant analysis to new generations. We seek to develop a greater understanding of the significance that Marx’s philosophy of revolution has for the 21st century, to extend this body of work, and to develop a Marxist alternative to capitalism, rooted in dialectics and in an ethical, humanist praxis.  We welcome presentations and dialogue around these issues.

Welcome to the Marxian Analysis of Society, Schools, and Education SIG. 

We are a collective of scholars, practitioners, and activists who explore educational and social issues from Marxian perspectives. Central to our Marxist analyses are the dialectics of race, and gender, among other systems of domination. Our work lies in applying Marxist analyses to the multiple crises we face in education and society and theorizing around liberating anti-capitalist humanizing alternatives. We hope you will join us and encourage your colleagues also to join us in this quest.  

Please subscribe to our newsletter: 

 We welcome submissions of publications, networking opportunities, professional development opportunities, organizing/activism opportunities, and calls for action. Please send me an email if you want your work to be featured in the newsletter.
