We’re back at it again with a series of seminars The Isms of March as part of our Thinking Critically about Society series. We’ll be joined by CSU Monterey Bay professors, local poets, and critically thinkers just like you to help tackle some of the different ideologies and theories that we’ve been hearing about.

Friday 23 March – 7pm: Reading Marx
Facilitated by Stephanie Spoto

Marx and Engels’ theories became the most important political philosophies of the twentieth century, inspiring revolutions all over the world. Though we now maybe are familiar with some critiques of capitalism and some of the language of class consciousness, how might we understand some of the more nuanced aspects of Marxist thought? Why are dialectics and historical materialism and why were these ideas important to Marxist thought?

The readings for this session include:

1.) The Communist Manifesto (Of course) by Marx and Engels.
2.) “Socialism: Utopian & Scientific” by Engels.
3.) “From Servitude to Service Work: Historical Continuities in the Racial Division of Paid Productive Labor” by Evelyn Nakano Glenn.

Readings are available for free at
