February 18: Communist Forum with Hillel Ticktin
The global economic situation- what next?
Sunday, February 18, 5pm, Calthorpe Arms (252 Grays Inn Rd, London WC1X 8JR)
Hillel Ticktin was born in South Africa in 1937, and left the country to avoid arrest for political activism. He wrote his PhD thesis whilst living in the Soviet Union. Due to his critical approach towards the official Communist parties of the time, his work was rejected. In 1965 he began teaching at the University of Glasgow, and in 1973 he co-founded Critique, a Journal of Socialist Theory, an independent, refereed, scholarly Marxist journal.
In 2000, he was appointed Emeritus Professor of Marxist Studies at the University of Glasgow and he was also appointed as Chairman of the Centre for the Study of Socialist Theory and Movement.
Now retired from his emeritus post, he continues to lecture and also to write for Critique and other publications.
