Description: 
2018 marks the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, than whom, as even his ideological opponent Isaiah Berlin had to admit, “no thinker in the nineteenth century has had so direct, deliberate, and powerful an influence upon mankind.” This panel seeks to bring together intellectuals of all sorts, whether academics or activists, who are committed to exploring Marx’s legacy in this post-Marxist age, those who, once more, seek somehow to bring that legacy to bear upon the world. Specifically, the panel seeks to address what is legacy of Marx’s life as a revolutionary intellectual, that is the legacy of the political writings and activities he contributed to the socialist workers’ movement.
