Viewpoint Magazine at Historical Materialism


View­point Mag­a­zine is a proud Co-Spon­sor of this year’s His­tor­i­cal Mate­ri­al­ism New York con­fer­ence on “Resur­gent Rad­i­calisms in a Polar­iz­ing World.” We hope that the con­fer­ence can be anoth­er plat­form for urgent debate on ques­tions posed by social move­ments and Marx­ist the­o­ry. View­point is espe­cial­ly hap­py to announce two fea­ture pan­els for our jour­nal, as well as six oth­er pan­els joined by our edi­tors.1
