Call for papers: 1818 Karl Heinrich Marx 2018 Lyon, 27-29 September 2017

 
 

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

 

2018 marks the year of the bicentenary of Karl Marx’s birth. On this occasion, a

conference co-organized by the research centre Triangle and the European

Journal of the History of Economic Thought will be held in Lyon to recall Marx’s

achievements as an economist and political philosopher.

 

Was Marx the “odd man out”, a “crank”, whose contribution defies any

conventional classification and assessment? Was he a “minor post Ricardian”, as

has been contended? Was he a genius of political economy, whose statements

contain indubitable truths, as some of his followers maintain? The questions to be

dealt with include the following: What is the relationship between Marx’s

philosophical training in Hegel and Kant and his political economy? What is the

relationship between his political economy and that of the classical economists?

To what extent was he aware of the rise of the marginalist doctrine and how did

he react to it? How were his propositions received in the academic and political

sphere? How did his message spread around the world? What can we learn from

him today? Thanks to the publication of substantial parts of the new MEGA

edition, we can now form a much clearer idea of the progress of Marx’s work and

the reasons why he did not succeed in completing Das Kapital. Contributions that

take into account the MEGA are especially welcome.

 

All proposals of papers (1,000 words at the most) on all aspects of Marx’s thought

and writings will be welcome. They must be sent simultaneously to Rebeca

Gomez Betancourt (rebeca.gomezbetancourt@univ-lyon2.fr) and Gilbert

Faccarello (gilbert.faccarello@u-paris2.fr) no later than 15 February, 2017. (Full

papers are due by 15 July, 2017.)

 

Authors submitting papers do so on the understanding that papers accepted for the

conference are eligible for a special issue of the European Journal of the History

of Economic Thought.

 

A special day for PhD students and young researchers

In supplement and as a prelude to this event, the conference will be preceded by a

day of lectures and debates around the work of Karl Marx, in order to introduce

the Marx studies to PhD students and young research fellows interested in the

topic.
