About Us

We are a group of academics, researchers, students working in various fields within a Marxist and Historical Materialist perspective.

We have also been active in various social and political movements in Greece in the past years. We have participated in HM Conferences in London and other cities and we strongly support the idea of conferences that are open to dialogue, avoid sectarianism and bring together in a comradely manner people from different traditions and different theoretical fields in discussions that promote theoretical understanding of contemporary capitalism but also help movements of resistance and emancipation. This is how we came up with the idea of the Athens Historical Materialism Conference as a venue for discussion and debate, theoretical but also related to strategic political questions.

To proceed with the Conference, we also have the important support and help of the Department of Social Policy of Panteion University of Social and Political Studies.
