Subject: Re: M-I: Racism, sexism, and class

Thanks to Zeynep, Carrol and Justin for excellent posts. I am getting
close to the point when I will be able to announce a schedule on the
cyberseminar on the revolutionary potential of the working-class and it is
shaping up better than anybody could have expected.

May I suggest that another topic down the road might well be the
relationship between class and racial and sexual oppression? The
accusation of the post-modernists has been that Marxism has a blind-spot
with regard to the latter. This is historically true, but is the problem
in Marx or in the way Marxism has been applied?

Finally, I find it most perplexing how George Yudice has just faded away.
I wonder if he is still on the list or not. I guess he expected to find a
faculty lounge, but it's turned out to be much more like an encounter
group. Oh well, he can always check in with marxism-thaxis although I've
heard that there can be stormy weather over there as well.

Myself, I love stormy weather.
