Some responses to the first "Marxism and Education: Renewing Dialogues"
Seminar (22nd October 2002, Institute of Education)...

Great seminar today! (Jane Kelly, e-mail 22nd October)

Thanks for organising such an excellent day of discussion! (Corrina
Lotz, e-mail 22nd October)

I thought the meeting was rather good. I was pleasantly surprised in
fact. The main thing was there was a forum where you could speak freely
without having to tailor your contribution to the discourse of
discourse, economic development, or whatever is the usual ostensible
subject of academic conferences. (Patrick Ainley, e-mail 22nd October)

Thanks for organising it and putting these ideas back on the map. What
next? (Mark Kirby, e-mail 22nd October)

Thank you very much for organising a very, very inspiring event.  A lot
of food for thought ... (Miriam Mareso, e-mail 22nd October)

Thanks for a really great day. Very stimulating and provocative...
