10 WEEK COURSE:
MARXISM AND NATIONAL LIBERATION COURSE DESCRIPTION
Liberation struggles throughout the world have made key contributions to revolutionary theory and to a broader understanding and application of Marxism in the various realities present around the world. However, much of this theory is not studied beyond the space where it originated.
The Marxism and National Liberation Course attempts to address the need to collectively deepen our knowledge of the key thinkers and theoretical contributions of Marxists in the Third World.
Over the course of 10 weeks students will explore through their own research, the life and works of 12 key thinkers. Each student will be assigned to one of the 12 thinkers to conduct deep study and research either individually or in a small group.
The course will be led and taught by Tricontinental Director, Vijay Prashad.
