Marxism & (Bio)Politics: The 20th Annual Conference of the Marxist Reading Group
Thursday, 22 March through Saturday, 24 March

Keynote Speakers:
Christopher Breu
Tru Leverette
Alexander Weheliye

In the midst of a new materialist turn in theory, from Object Oriented Ontology and ecocriticism to Afropessimism, the MRG sees biopolitics as an opportunity to reconnect materialism to politics. Biopolitics enables us to link the corporeal, the biological, and the artificial through materialist thought. Thinkers from Sylvia Wynter to Alexander Weheliye have used biopolitical theory to expand the category of the human, which has traditionally been understood as the white, propertied male subject. This conference seeks to investigate how these new articulations of the human, and the biopolitical turn more generally, can be used to reinvigorate Marxian praxis.
