‘Freedom is always freedom for the one who thinks differently’ – Rosa Luxemburg for our times

Gender Institute and The Ralph Miliband Programme public lecture

Date: Tuesday 22 March 2011
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Jacqueline Rose
Chair: Professor Anne Phillips

“In this lecture Jacqueline Rose will argue that Rosa Luxemburg’s legacy increases in importance by the day, that as a Marxist and woman she can uniquely teach us about the relationship between political struggle and the life of the mind, and that the implications of her thought resonate through the assault on education under the present UK coalition government to the seemingly interminable conflict in the Middle East.”

This lecture coincides with the launch of The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg and The Jacqueline Rose Reader.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries email events@lse.ac.uk or call 020 7955 6043.
