  2. Martin Hägglund’s This Life and Marx

    Join Historical Materialism and Haymarket Books for a discussion and responses to ‘This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom’ by Martin Hägglund.


    Martin Hägglund’s This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom (2019) sets out a conception of human freedom informed by a deep reading of Marx. With widespread popularity, This Life achieves a level of attention of which most philosophical treatments of Marx could only dream. Given this success, it is not just the presence of Marx in This Life which is interesting. Rather, what is compelling is the erudition of Hägglund’s philosophical approach. With a philosophically rich Marx, Hägglund argues that we can articulate a politics for our time.

    In conversation with Hägglund, this panel explores the implications of this philosophical understanding of Marx and human freedom, informed by normative Hegelian philosophy and value-form Marxism. —————————————————————————————————————-


    Martin Hägglund is Birgit Baldwin Professor of Comparative Literature and Humanities at Yale University. His book This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom has been an international best-seller and is the subject of a symposium in Los Angeles…

  5. How Do We Understand the Right?

    Sunday 26th September - Brighthelm Centre - Auditorium

    As the Tories adapt to the 2020s with authoritarianism, culture wars and state intervention in the economy, we need to better understand the politics, organisation and ideologies of the right - from Westminster politicians, to the right wing media and their corporate paymasters - so we can beat them.

  6. BOOK LAUNCH! ‘Lost in Work’ by Amelia Horgan

    Join Amelia Horgan, Lois McCallum, Tam Wilson and chair Sarah Jaffe for a launch event to mark the release of Amelia’s book ‘Lost in Work’, the latest book in the Outspoken by Pluto series, published by Pluto Press.

    For people today, hard work in school no longer guarantees a secure, well-paying job in the future. Far from a gateway to riches and fulfilment, ‘work’ means precarity, anxiety and alienation. In response, we’ve seen increased demand from the left for workers to join a union.

    But what can workers achieve when they unionise their workplace and rally around a set of demands?

    How does the emergence of the gig economy, 0 hours contracts and bogus self employment change the nature of workplace organising?

    And can union organising move beyond winning small victories in workplaces to the wholesale transformation of work itself?

    Amelia Horgan is a writer and researcher. She has written for various publications, including Tribune, the Guardian and VICE.

    Lois McCallum is a hospitality worker and trade union rep, speaking on behalf of Sheffield Needs a Payrise, a campaign organising workers to fight back against low pay – and offering an alternative to the dismal working conditions that plague post-industrial Britain.

    Tam Wilson works for the STUC (Scottish Trades Union Congress) as an organi…

    In and Against Book Launch [4 - 5pm] 40 odd years after its original publication "In and Against the State" still provokes useful questions for socialist militants. However, it’s republication also allows us to redress the forgotten history of a socialist tendency that was more informed by the events of 1968 than by social democracy or Marxist Leninism; a history that has surprising parallels with the movements and events that immediately preceded Corbynism.
