Abstract

The powerful historical narrative developed by Neoliberalism across the last forty years has sought to seriously challenge the intellectual and political relevance of contemporary Marxism. With the inception of the global financial crisis, however, Marxism is experiencing something of a cultural renaissance, with Marxist approaches to crisis-ridden global capitalism appearing increasingly relevant.

This conference aims to think about the current state of Marxist literary criticism, theories of culture, and to consider the relevance of Marxism to contemporary left politics.
