 > Hi everyone,
> This email goes out to academic scholars and political activists who might
> be interested in submitting abstracts to the panel session "The Crisis and
> the Other" which will take place at the Marx 2013 Conference at Södertörn
> University, Sweden, between 18th-20th of October this fall. For further
> information about the Marx 2013 conference, see http://marx2013.com.
> The session "The Crisis and the Other" asks for Marxist perspectives on
> current European xenophobia. Presuming that racism is not a loosely
> hovering ideology, but rather inscribed into and reproduced by
> socio-economic relations, it encourages a rethinking of the relation
> between race/ethnicity, class and economics. Suggested questions includes
> the following:
> How can we comprehend the relation between neoliberal politics and
> increased inequalities on the one hand, and xenophobia and ethnic
> chauvinism on the other? Why do workers turn to reactionary, rather than
> progressive or revolutionary, movements in times of crisis? Is it possible
> to posit the question of increasing xenophobia without a class perspective?
> Is ”antiracism” an appropriate concept for building resistance against
> these movements, or is it more adequate to use the term "antifascism"?
> The official call for papers to "The Crisis and the Other" can be seen at

> of questions about the session, please contact me at
