Red Stripe Symposium

Red Stripe is a broadly left-wing reading group committed to stimulating radical critical thought and literary and cultural theory in contemporary Ireland. In existence in various forms for over twenty years, the group has engaged in the past with classical marxist theory, Western Marxism (from Lukács, the Frankfurt School and Gramsci to the contemporary British and American New Lefts), left-wing feminism and world systems analysis, but maintains an open interest in many new forms of radical social and cultural critique. It is a collaborative project between academics and students located in Maynooth University, UCD, UCC, and other institutions. We welcome new participants from the academic and student community, as well as all those interested in engaging with the questions on this year’s agenda.

When: Friday, 25 April 2014

Where: English Seminar Room 1, Iontas Building, Maynooth University
