On September 14, 1867, the Börsenblatt des deutschen Buchhandels informed the public about the publication of Karl Marx’s magnum opus, «Capital, Volume I: The Process of Production of Capital.» Exactly 150 years after this truly historic date, we invite you to join us to celebrate the anniversary of this influential publication.

We are delighted to invite the preeminent Marxist scholar David Harvey to discuss the context of the publication of Capital as well as the book’s relevance to theory and movements, from 1867 to 2017. Harvey will be joined in discussion by Nancy Holmstrom, Professor Emeritus at Rutgers University, and Ajay Singh Chaudhary, of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.

David Harvey is one of the world’s leading Marxist scholars. He works as distinguished professor of anthropology & geography at CUNY, where he has been teaching Marx’s “Capital: Critique of Political Economy” for more than four decades. Harvey is the author of numerous books, including The Limits of Capital (1982), Spaces of Capital: Towards a Critical Geography (2001), A Brief History of Neoliberalism (2005), and The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism (2010).

Why was Capital so influential? Why has it been so durable? How can what we have learned since its publication strengthen our understanding of its core theoretical message? How can it help us to better understand the world we live in and to fight for a better world for our children?

Join us to answer these questions and more, on Thursday, September 14, from 7:00-8:30pm at the Goethe-Institut (30 Irving Place, New York). The discussion will be followed by a reception.

This event is a co-production of the Goethe-Institut New York and the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office.
