The Marxist Literary Group's annual Institute on Culture and Society
(MLG-ICS) will convene this summer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, June
10-15, on the campus of the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee. The
six-dayInstitute will feature Purnima Bose and other invited guests,
an intensive reading group on Rosa Luxemburg led by Paul Smith,
Kanishka Chowdhury, Joseph Ramsey, and others (additional volunteers
are invited), and consecutive (as opposed to simultaneous) panels.
The organizing committee is now accepting submissions for panel and
paper proposals. As always, any work that engages seriously with the
Marxist tradition will be considered. The special topic of this
year's ICS is "Anti-Globalization/Counter Globalization." Papers that deal with this topic are especially welcome, though not required. Selected papers will be published in the online journal _mediations_.
Paper abstracts should be less than 500 words. Panel proposals should include the name and contact information of the panel organizer, a rationale for the panel, presenters' names, affiliations, paper titles, and abstracts of no more than 500 words. Please send submissions (preferably as pdf files) with a cover email including presenter or panel organizer contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2008.
