On 4 December, the conference on unorthodox and Austro-Marxism in Eastern Europe and beyond took place in Vienna. Watch here the recordings of the lectures.
The aim of the conference was to present current research, to deepen knowledge of Austro-Marxist and unorthodox Marxist thought in Eastern Europe from the early 1900s to the beginning of the Second World War, and to encourage further research on the subject.
The main idea behind the conference was to show the variety of unorthodox Marxist thought in broader Eastern Europe in the historical context of the Austro-Hungarian Empire as well as between the two World Wars when unorthodox Marxism and Austromarxist influences took their diverse national shapes in connection to different political, economic and social developments in different Eastern and South-Eastern European countries.
The conference covered the broadest spectre of unorthodox Marxist and Austro-Marxist theories and thinkers. The panels were not organised around the countries-centred model, nor on the strict thematical units model, but as the collaborative platform whose aim is to gather broader information about possible links for further research.
