The Marxist Reading Group meets every other Wednesday, 7-9 pm at Chapterhouse Gallery. All are welcome to attend!

This week, we continue our study of Karl Marx’s writings, reading an abridged version of his infamous, sprawling Grundrisse. Often cited as a pivotal text in Marxism (though it is probably mentioned far more often than it is actually read), this series of notebooks was abandoned by Marx in 1858; it would remain unpublished for nearly a century. Contained within the work, however, is a series of potent ideas that anticipate Marx’s later systematic writings–and link his economic theories to major questions about society, history, and politics.

Join us–whether you are brand new to Marxist economics, or want to deepen your understanding of Marx even more!
