MYTS:in kesäretki 7.8. Sinivuokossa

Marxilaisen Yhteiskuntatieteen Seura tekee jälleen lauantaina 7.8.2010 perinteisen kesäretken Hervannan liepeillä sijaitsevaan viehettävään Sinivuokkoon. Paikalla on tarkoitus olla kello 12 maissa.

Ohjelmassa on kaksi alustusta:

Lauri Kämäri – Marxilaisesta luokkateoriasta
Antti Ronkainen – Talouskriisin tarkastelua arvolain avulla

Kesäretki jatkuu alustusten herättämällä keskustelulla, makkaroiden ja vihannesta grillailulla ja muiden eväiden nauttimisella kiireettömässä tunnelmassa. Sinivuokossa on myös saunomis- ja uintimahdollisuus, joten oma pyyhe mukaan.

Paikka & saapumisohje:

Helpoin ja varmin tapa löytää perille on astua Keskustorilta klo 11:20 (perillä 11:42, seuraava bussi lähtee 11:40 ja on perillä 12:02) lähtevään bussiin numero 30. Mukana on kokeneita Sinivuokon kävijöitä, jotka tuntevat Hervannan päässä tien perille. Poisjäänti Arkkitehdinkadun ensimmäisellä pysäkillä. Siitä jatketaan Ahvenisjärventielle, jonka jälkeen yli/ali Ruskontien Salinintielle.

Omalla kulkuneuvolla paikalle tuleville kerrottakoon, että Hervannan Sinivuokko sijaitsee Salinintiellä Hervantajärven rannalla. Sijainti löytyy GoogleMapsista. Salinintietä kuljetaan noin 300 metriä ja pienestä parkkilaajentumasta alas rantaan. Paikka on löydettävissä myös Eniro-puhelinluettelon karttasivulta 23 ruudusta BG-18.

Mikäli tarvitset lisätietoja, ota yhteys Juha Koivistoon (050- 5418912) tai Antti Ronkaiseen (040-7764204).

Tervetuloa mukaan kesäretkelle!

Call for Papers: Rosa Luxemburg’s Political Economy:

Contributions to Contemporary Political Theory and Practice

A Special Issue of Socialist Studies: Journal of the Society for Socialist Studies

Fall 2010

Since her assassination, Rosa Luxemburg has been treated as an icon while her political and theoretical work is largely forgotten, neglected, or rejected. Recently, though, David Harvey used her ideas on capitalist expansion to explain the new imperialism. Other elements of her work are promising for socialist studies and the left, today. Her analysis of mass strikes in Russia in 1905, for example, may cast new light on workers’ struggles in China. Luxemburg’s critical discussion of nations’ right to self-determination inform, or ought to inform, contemporary Latin American struggles against imperialist domination. Her writings on mass strikes, parties and trade unions, like her better-known writings on ‘social reform or revolution’, offer
insights into the role of (weakly) organized labour in political change. Although Luxemburg didn’t engage much with women’s issues directly, her work and its reception nonetheless have an important gender dimension. In particular, feminist women scholars have been quicker to recognize Luxemburg’s contributions to socialist political economy than their male colleagues.

Call For Papers: Marxism and Psychology Conference

Marxism and Psychology Conference
The University of Prince Edward Island
August 5-7, 2010
Submission Deadline: January 15, 2010

In the history of social thought, it is difficult to find a more divisive figure than Karl Marx. For many, the mere mention of his name conjures up images of totalitarian regimes dominating nearly every aspect of an individual’s existence. Yet for others, Marx’s critique of the capitalist mode of production draws attention to the fact that our beliefs, thoughts, and desires inevitably emerge against the background of specific cultural, historical, and social practices.
