A one-day conference at Hofstra University celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Karl Marx’s Capital.
Thursday, 6 April 2017
We invite submissions of papers to be presented at a conference to be held at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York, on Thursday April 6th, 2017.  We are soliciting papers from any discipline that extend and apply Marx’s analytical apparatus (including the labor theory of value) to some aspect of the crisis of global capitalism today.

Please send a 250 word abstract by October 15th, 2016 to the conference organizers (Conrad.Herold@Hofstra.edu or Marc.L.Silver@Hofstra.edu).  Include your name, an e-mail address, and a brief biographical statement.  We anticipate including selected papers in a published anthology.  We are prepared to extend the length of the conference into the weekend of April 7th to 9th, should submissions so warrant.
