>The Forum for European Philosophy Presents:


>After Globalisation: A Return to Marx?



>This two-day Anglo-French Conference, organised in Paris in association

>with the Collège international de philosophie and the journal Actuel Marx,

>is a sequel to an Anglo-French conference on 'Returns to Marx' held in

>London in June 2002. The purpose is to revisit certain strands of the

>Specters of Marx and Marx & Sons, will be a central focus of discussion.
