Rosa Luxemburg and Her Ideas: Engaging the Left and Impacting the World

26 – 29 April, 2018 – Chicago (USA)

Conference Language: English
Rosa Luxemburg dedicated her life to the fight against war, poverty, exploitation and any kind of suppression. Yet today in the age of neo-liberalism, we have the same problems as in the beginning of the 20th century. Luxemburg, a versatile Marxist theoretician, excellent journalist, and effective agitator has left us a body of work that may support and impact on the present left. We invite you to present relevant papers on the life and work of Rosa Luxemburg and her close comrades.

The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg

Volume 1: Economic Writings I, edited by Peter Hudis, London / New York November 2013, Hardback, 464 pages, ISBN: 9781844679744

Volume II: Economic Writings 2, edited by Peter Hudis and Paul LeBlanc, London / New York 2015, Hardback, 576 pages; ISBN: 9781781688526  

Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) is widely regarded as one of the most creative writers of modern socialism and the foremost female theoretician of European radicalism. Her wide-ranging and incisive works, which include studies on capitalism’s inherent drive for global expansion, the relation between spontaneity and organization, and the inseparability of democracy and socialism, have made her a pole of attraction for theorists and activists around the world. Her fiercely independent intellect and uncompromising defense of human liberty speaks more powerfully to our era than to any other.

Volume II contains a new English translation of Luxemburg’s most important book, her theoretical masterpiece, The Accumulation of Capital (1913) as well as her response to its critics. Taken together, they constitute one of the most important Marxist studies of the globalization of capital.
