The age of imperial conquest was followed by a period of harsh occupation–as well as a wave of anti-colonial strife across the globe. Marxists took the lead in many of these struggles, looking to socialism as a pathway to freedom.
In this session, we will read CLR James and Frantz Fanon, two of the most influential theorists of colonialism. We will examine their contributions to Marxist theory, as well as their role in the fight for a better world.

Sessions will focus on big picture ideas, unpacking fundamental concepts of historical, political, and economic analysis, as well as more specific debates focused on issues such as class, the State, gender, imperialism, colonialism, hegemony, and history. Along the way, we'll read some of the most influential writers in the Marxist tradition, including David Harvey, Angela Davis, GA Cohen, CLR James, EP Thompson, and Rosa Luxemburg.
