The Danish Society for Marxist Studies (Danish: Selskab for Marxistiske Studier, SMS) is an independent academic society in Denmark. The purpose of the society is to further interest in and research on the intersection between Marxism and other strains of critical scholarship at Danish universities and institutes of higher learning, especially among early career researchers.
For this purpose, SMS organises an annual conference where scholars, students, and others can present their ongoing research, and where we are committed to crossing the narrow disciplinary borders that have always been a part of academia, but which Marxism has never fitted inside.
We therefore understand ‘Marxism’ in the broadest possible definition of the term as the critical tradition emanating from Marx’s thought in its entire historical and theoretical breadth and depth, and SMS is not committed to any one particular theoretical or political position.
We welcome critical scholars and students of all stripes, colours, and traditions.
The steering committee of SMS also functions as the organising committee for the annual conference and currently consists of the following members:
- Marie Louise Krogh
- Mikkel Flohr
- Esben Bøgh Sørensen
- Lotte List
- Søren Mau
- Magnus Møller Ziegler
- Signe Leth Gammelgaard
- Charlotte Cator
- Markus Christian Hansen
- Dominique Routhier
