Karl Marx – Life, Ideas, Influence: A Critical Examination on the Bicentenary

June 16-20, 2018, Patna (Bihar), India


Marxism is not as alive today as it was during the two preceding centuries. But even now ideas of Karl Marx continue to engage intellect, imagination and conscience of human minds across the world from perspectives that are understandably very diverse. Thus, as we approach 2018, the bicentenary of the great scholar, it is certainly an apt moment not just to remember him, but to rethink and interrogate all that is sourced to him, both academically and in terms of political practice. Sharing this perspective, the Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI), Patna would organize an International Conference entitled on 'Karl Marx-Life, Ideas and Influence: A Critical Examination on the Bicentenary' during June 16-20, 2018 in Patna (Bihar), India.

Laws of Social and Economic Dynamics: Mode of Production; Historical/Dialectical Materialism

Marx and Variants of Marxism

Marxism and Sociology: Theory of Class and Social Formation

Marxism and Feminism

Marxism and Philosophical Issues

Marxism and Arts & Literature


Marxism in the Indian context

Russian Experience
