Copious apologies for cross-posting. The work
of merging several long mailing lists has had
  to wait till after the conference season.

Here are final details of the joint symposium on "Debates in the theory of
value since Marx" at Greenwich University, London, on Thursday and Friday
29th and 30th June. It is organised by the International Working Group on
Value Theory, Capital and Class, and Historical Materialism.

These two days fall between the AHE conference and the CSE Globalisation
conference so, if you are in town, please drop in.

If you plan to come please drop me a line; I can then send you papers as
they come in, and also we can make restaurant bookings for the evening

Greenwich is now easy to get to (30-40 minutes from central London), with
many attractions including not least the Museum of Time, the park, the
market, the meridian and observatory, a beautiful stretch of river with
plenty of restaurants and pubs and, if you must, the Millenium Dome.

The symposium will take the form of four three-hour sessions with an
introductory presentation, responses from discussants, followed by free-form
discussion and convivial meals at appropriate times. The sessions will
provide an introduction for the nonspecialist with extensive time for
questions, debate, audience participation and engagement. Papers will be
available on the website (www.greenwich.ac.uk/|fa03/iwgvt) about a week
beforehand. Anything that you'd like to circulate can also be placed on the
site and if you'd like to be a discussant for any of the papers please tell
us. Details of how to get there and a map can also be found on the site.

There will be a five pound fee to cover our costs including hopefully
coffee; low-wage participants free, or whatever you feel able to contribute.

How to get there

The Maritime campus is five minutes walk from central Greenwich. It is the
old Royal Naval College, opposite the Maritime Museum. The entrance closest
to Queen Anne Court is in Park Row, which runs between Romney Road (the main
road heading East out of Greenwich) and the river.


Connex South-East (overground commuter railway) trains call at Greenwich
station or at Maze Hill station (one stop further, but slightly closer),
leaving every 15-20 minutes from Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London
Bridge, and in peak hours from Cannon Street. They take about 20 minutes.

DLR (Docklands Light Railway) trains stop at Greenwich and at Cutty Sark
(also slightly closer).

>From North Greenwich Jubilee Line Underground station you can take any
Greenwich-bound bus (journey time about 5 minutes, frequency every 5

The room is in the Queen Anne Court, one of four buildings inside the main
campus, which is on your right as you enter from Park Row. Room 138 is on
the first floor. The Site Map, available on the website, may help.

Best wishes

Alan Freeman
