Reading Marx’s Capital, Volume I (second series)

Sun, May 21, 2023 @ 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Free – $90
Capitalism, by Banksy
Covering Parts III and IV of Capital, volume 1

Capital Volume IJoin us in a close reading of Volume 1 of Marx’s Capital – already in progress – guided by an experienced team led by Lisa Maya Knauer. This spring, we are reading Parts III and IV, on the production of absolute and relative surplus value. Each week, we recap the passages covered at the previous session, introduce new material, and open up a discussion. We read the more challenging sections together a paragraph or two at a time. Supplementary materials and/or questions for reflection are circulated prior to each week’s session, and the conversation continues in the group’s Slack channel.

Lisa Maya Knauer has been involved with Marxist education in New York for her entire adult life, and has taught a variety of classes at the MEP and its predecessors. Her current activist work focuses on immigrant workers’ rights and indigenous struggles for land and water. In her day job, she is a tenured radical at a public university.
