Details

The year 1818 saw the birth of two foundational thinkers: Frederick Douglass and Karl Marx. Abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass writes in 1864 that "the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation" in response to discriminatory racial policies that he seeks to dismantle. Similarly, Karl Marx finds his task in 1843 to be the "ruthless criticism of all that exists" as a means to social, economic, and political reform. Faculty panels on these extraordinary theorists examine their lasting influence.

 

Tonight’s discussion on Karl Marx will be presented by:

Tom Reifer, PhD | Chair and Professor, Sociology

Michael Gonzalez, PhD | Professor, History and Director, History Graduate Program

Yi Sun, PhD | Professor, History and Director, Asian Studies Program
