We are happy to announce the 2021 Montreal Marxist Winter School - online edition!

The Montreal Marxist Winter School has enjoyed revolutionary growth and is now the biggest Marxist event in the country. More than 250 people attended in February 2020, just prior to the pandemic. As we cannot currently meet in person, our 2021 event will be held online and it is set to be the biggest one yet.

The 11th annual Marxist School will be held on Zoom over the February long weekend of 13, 14 and 15. As we will not have to worry about travel we decided to expand the school to cover three days instead of two - adding four sessions! As usual, all presentations and discussions will be held in French and English with translation.
