2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. Marx Memorial Library, MML, will be seeking to occupy a leading position in organising and publicising activities in the UK, with a special emphasis on Marx’s continuing relevance for activism and scholarship. MML is uniquely placed to do this. It has a proud history as a centre for the study of Marxism; for over eighty years, since its foundation in 1933, spreading an understanding of the science of Marxism has been at the heart of what the Library does.
Among other things, such as educational workshops through the year, MML will be organising a two-day Conference of its own on May 5th and 6th, 2018, which coincides with the date of Marx’s birth itself. This will involve both plenaries and workshops.
