Join PHL DSA for our Marxism and Politics Summer Lecture Series. Throughout June, July, and August, we are bringing political analysts and writers to Philadelphia to give seminars on their recent work. These lectures cover a variety of topics, but they share a common historical materialist lens by which to understand and analyze political struggles. Ahead of the talks, the Marxism and Politics Reading Group will read texts assigned by the upcoming lecturer and discuss.
For this lecture, we have Dan Lutz joining us. Dan Lutz joined the socialist movement when he was 15 and answered a classified ad on the back page of The Nation.* He has been involved in the labor movement for the last 20 years, first as a student-labor activist, then a telephone operator, then a staffer at Teamsters for a Democratic Union. He is currently a database administrator and software developer at the New York State Nurses Association. 

* It was for a group that had split away from Daniel DeLeon's Socialist Labor Party for straying from the teachings of Daniel DeLeon. 
Dan Lutz will be talking to the group about Socialist Planning.

The Marxism and Politics Reading Group will be meeting two weeks beforehand (on Monday, July 8th at 7 PM in Chapterhouse Caf
e) to discuss Oskar Lange's  “On the Economic Theory of Socialism” (Parts 1 & 2).
