che_vuoi Posted May 2, 2014 Share Posted May 2, 2014 hello! I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if this is a question that many of you have answered before. I'm interested in Marxism and its more recent incarnations in social theory (post-Marxism, autonomism, empire, rethinking communism, Zapatistas, etc.) I have a social-sciences background (B.A. in psychology, with a minor in applied linguistics, however, I was interested in social psychology in my undergraduate studies) and I am interested in social & critical theory / cultural studies. Sociology seems like the proper domain in which to explore Marxism given my background in the social-sciences (as opposed to Marxism in literature, for example), although I am drawn to interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate many different dimensions of the human sciences (media theory, art, film, literature, anthropology, etc.) and I'm not committed to studying sociology. Is anyone enrolled in a graduate program (M.A. or Ph.D.) or knows of one that provides a foundation in Marxism, post-Marxism, social movements, economic and political sociology, that they would recommend? With the resurgence of interest in Marxism, à la Žižek and others, one wouldn't think this would be difficult to locate, but I'm sort of without direction here given that I've been out of university for a couple years and I did not have a sociology background in my B.A. Thanks for the advice!
