Actuel Marx is a biannual journal whose primary purpose is to examine and create a forum for contemporary trends in Marxist research, to promote new approaches and applications of Marxist theory, and to provide an overview of current developments in research on Marx and Marxism.
Each issue includes a thematic section, an “intervention” section, and an in-depth interview or debate. The thematic sections address, in turn, purely theoretical issues (alienation, ideology, global history, etc.) or the contributions of noteworthy authors (Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, Fanon, etc.) and issues more directly related to current events (the crisis and rebound of neoliberalism, the transformation of forms of domination in the workplace, populism, etc.).
Within a French and Francophone perspective as well as a broader international perspective, the journal strives not only to inform readers of current approaches to Marx, but also to determine how Marx can contribute to the reformulation or shifting of the various debates within the fields of social sciences and humanities. Although philosophy is the journal’s dominant field, it works within the theoretical framework of various disciplines: philosophy, economy, law, history, sociology, anthropology, gender studies. The journal has created its own veritable scientific community, in cooperation with analogous important centers of research around the world: the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, and Japan. Thus, the journal is the center and base of a research network that also includes a collection published by PUF (Actuel Marx Confrontations), an Argentinean edition, and the network’s most recent addition, a Chilean edition based at the Universidad ARCIS in Santiago, Chile.
