The Life and Thought of Rosa Luxemburg

Socialism 2019

July 04, 2019

One hundred years after her death, Rosa Luxemburg remains one of the most important theoreticians of revolutionary socialism, and one of the most overlooked. New information regarding Rosa Luxemburg strengthen our understanding of her relationship with other revolutionary comrades (such as Lenin), and – along with more familiar views – provide insights into the classical Social Democracy within which she did battle around issues of reform and revolution. Each of the five presenters, Peter Hudis, Paul Le Blanc, Dana Mills, Sandra Rein, and Helen Scott, will address an aspect of Luxemburg’s work that has been illuminated by the newly translated materials for the Verso Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg project.

Save the date! Socialism 2020 will be July 2-5, 2020 in Chicago. Visit for updates.
