Rethinking Socialism(s) and Socialist Legacies in Postcolonial Asia
April 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Throughout the twentieth century, the ideas of Marx and Lenin were fervently listened to, adopted, modified, and confronted in Asia–an ideational and organizational reservoir still of foremost importance today. What socialism has meant, and still means, in theory, and in practice has always been highly heterogeneous. Join panelists as they discuss a key question: what can Asian imaginaries, institutions, and practices tell us about socialism as a global phenomenon?
