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

Sun, September 24, 2023 @ 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Capitalism, by Banksy

Covering Parts V through VIII of Capital, volume 1

Capital Volume IJoin us as we continue the close reading of Volume 1 of Marx’s Capital begun earlier this year, guided by an experienced team led by Lisa Maya Knauer. This fall we will be reading Parts V through VIII, covering Wages, the Accumulation of Capital, and the so-called Primitive Accumulation. 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.
