*Why Marxism? Whose Marxism? Let’s Begin from the Beginning.*

*Rethink Class, Race and Gender Inequalities and Education*

The current global momentum is a profound paradox. On one hand, our era has
been witnessing huge and dramatic transformations propelled by the biotech
movement including genetic and biotechnological discoveries, as well
as, theelectronic revolution of communications and informationboth of
which have had a huge impact on the way knowledge has been produced
and reproduced. Despite such progress, on the other hand, global societies
have been experiencing, among other things, the shocking exacerbation (and
in some cases the return) of horrendous social evils, namely, the return of
slavery, legitimization of human genocide, new pandemics, the return of high
vulnerability to old sicknesses that seemed to have been eradicated and now
appear to be linked to new pandemics like HIV/AIDS, and naturalization of
war, the domestication of revolting social inequalities (cf. Sousa Santos,
2005), the need of a more predatory capitalism to sustain neoliberal
capitalism, the emergence of a new economy propelled by the need to fight
terror(ism) (cf. Giroux, 2011). Despite the fact that we never had a society
that produced as much knowledge as today’s society, the fact is such
production not only has been incapable of building a fairer and just
society, but also as it has just served to increase and multiply social
inequality. Such shocking paradoxes bring to the fore the vitality of
(neo)Marxist analyses, as the ‘most rigorous, comprehensive critique of
capitalism ever to be launched’ (Eagleton, 2011). The 2012 Marxian Analysis
of Society, School and Education SIG program asks scholars and educators
around the globe, profoundly committed with the struggle for social and
cognitive justice, to rethinking not only class, race, and gender
inequalities and education, but also if the reinvigoration of the
(neo)Marxist analyses and contributions to society and education implies the
need to ‘begin from the beginning’ (Zizek, 2009). We asked scholars to
critically address questions such as why (neo)Marxism and whose (neo)Marxism
is a key to rethink and understand the current global disruption of
capitalism and its implications of the daily live of teachers and students.

Rouge Forum News (Issues 14 & 15): Call for papers.

Rouge Forum News, Issue 14: Call for papers

The Rouge Forum News is an outlet for working papers, critical analysis, and grassroots news. Issue 14 of the RF News will be dedicated to papers delivered at the Rouge Forum Conference at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, MI.

Conference presenters, if you would like your paper to be considered for Issue 14, please send your essay to Adam Renner at arenner@bellarmine.edu by June 15, 2009.

Rouge Forum News, Issue 15: Call for papers

The Rouge Forum News is an outlet for working papers, critical analysis, and grassroots news. Issue 15 will be dedicated to our persistence in providing links between runaway capital, the rabid and rapid standardization of curriculum, the co-optation of our unions, the militarization of our youth, and the creep of irrationalism in our schools.

We are interested in work from academics, parents, teachers, and students: teachers at all levels, students in ANY grade, parents of children of any age.

Something small, something big, something serious. It is the stories we get from people like you that make the RF News what it is. If you have a story to share, but would like to protect your identity, use a pen name. Pen names are ALWAYS welcome!

We NEED Art! Songs! Poems! Editorial cartoons! Links to online videos or other material!

We are looking for narratives, as well as research, and the interplay between research and practice which focuses on the economy, curriculum, unions, etc. If you have a story to tell, some research to share, a book to review, we’d love to see it (and share it).

We publish material from k-12 students, parents, teachers, academics, and community people struggling for equality and democracy in schools—writing (intended to inform/educate, or stories from your classroom, etc.), art, cartoons, photos, poetry. You can submit material for the RF News via email (text attachment, if possible) to Adam Renner at arenner@bellarmine.edu. PLEASE SUBMIT BY AUGUST 15, 2009.
