Marx’s Capital, volume one (3)
Seminar of the NYC Marxist Studies Collective at the People’s Forum
Fall 2019 / Conducted by Russell Dale 

This course will be a careful reading of the final third of Marx’s great economic analysis and critique of capitalism, Capital, volume one. This will be the third of three consecutive courses (Spring, Summer, Fall 2019) in which we will carefully read and discuss the entire work. We will be particularly concerned, as always, with issues of gender, race, and white supremacy in capitalist society as well as how these are reflected in Marx’s work emerging from a tradition that was deeply steeped in patriarchy and the growing racism and white supremacy of the 18th and early-19th centuries. This course and year (2019) is also part of a longer three-year project in which we will carefully read all three volumes of Capital

All are welcome! 

The course will run for 15 weeks on Friday evenings from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM starting on Friday, September 20, 2019 and continuing until Friday, January 27, 2019. We will be reading the Ben Fowkes translation of Marx’s Capital, volume one, published by Penguin. (Arrangements will be made for students who cannot buy a copy of this book.) 


This is an ongoing class and students are welcome to join at any point during the term.
