About the Section 2018-11-26T11:08:21+00:00

The Marxist Sociology Blog is a production of the Marxist Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association. It publishes short articles of theory, research and commentary from Marxists of all theoretical schools and academic disciplines. We conceive of marxist sociology in the broadest sense, spanning modern disciplines and covering economy, politics, culture, history.

The blog also hosts resources for ASA Marxist Section members, including news & announcements, lists of journals that publish Marxist scholarship, resources for education and pedagogy, and links to related websites.
