You can connect with other Section on Marxist Sociology members via our facebook group or twitter account. However, all section communications are sent out via our listserv (see below).

LISTSERV Information and Support

The Marxist Section has two public email lists.

  • discussion [at] This list is open to all who are interested in Marxist sociology — including people who are not members of the ASA or the Marxist Section. It may have higher-traffic. All Section members are automatically subscribed. To sign up to this list, click here.
  • announcements [at] This is a moderated list managed by council members and is used solely for sending out announcements (i.e., one-way). The list includes both current and past Marxist Section members. Replies automatically go to the discussion list (below), where you can get more information about an announcement. It has been designed as a low-traffic list. To sign up to this list, click here.

To send a message to all of the people currently subscribed to a given list, send an email to the appropriate list (i.e.  announcements [at] or discussion [at] To avoid duplicate messages and moderation delays, please send emails only to the list address (i.e. remove any emails other than the list emails from the TO and CC fields).
