MidwestMarxismPosterMark your calendars! Click here to RVSP. Free childcare will be provided to all who need it. A suggested donation to cover costs will be collected at the door but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The conference will be held at Bodhi Spiritual Center (2746 N Magnolia Ave, # 2750, Chicago, Illinois 60614).

There will be two sessions:

(1) BUILDING THE PARTY — How the Bolsheviks organized themselves and what activists today can learn from their experience.

(2) HOW THE REVOLUTION WAS WON — The role of the revolutionary party in the course of a revolution.

We are recommending that attendees read Paul Leblanc’s book Lenin and the Revolutionary Party in preparation for the two sessions. Those unable to read the Leblanc should read Ahmed Shawki’s excellent piece “Eighty Years Since the Russian Revolution.”

We look forward to seeing you there!
