Critique Conference 2014: Imperialism and War

11 & 12 April 2014
Thai Theatre, New Academic Building,
London School of Economics, WC2A 3LJ
To mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Critique is looking for conference papers around the topic of imperialism and war
We propose including the whole gamut of causes and consequences, given the extra-ordinary nature of the First World War, its mindless cruelty and destructiveness, on the one hand, but the fantastic explosion of working class revolution throughout Europe on the other. The ruling class was bent on compelling its citizens to fight to the last man, for a cause which disappeared into the mist. Imperialism, which most see as a crucial underlying cause of the war, continues down to the present and conceptions of imperialism, even as applicable to the War of 1914-18, have been developed and discussed.
Confirmed speakers include: Bob Brenner, Mick Cox and Hillel Ticktin
