And we are done...


The 'Capital' Against Capitalism conference was a great success, 
and standing room only for the main plenary sessions. 

Thanks to everyone for attending, and those who assisted us to organise the day.
 We particularly want to thank the FBEU for use of their venue.

As we said at the conference yesterday, 
it was a pleasure to organise and we hope this is the first of many.

See you on Saturday...

Registrations for the conference have been flowing in, so if you have done registered yet please do so to ensure your place. Jonathon and I are looking forward to meeting everyone!

Conference packs will be available from 8.30am on the day, and the first session will begin promptly at 9am. Lunch and afternoon tea are provided (but please bring your own take away coffee or tea in the morning if you want one).

The conference is due to finish at 5.15pm, and will be followed by an informal discussion of the possibility of an official Historical Materialism Journal conference in Australia in 2012 (commencing at about 5.45pm). All attendees are welcome to be involved in this discussion.

See you soon.
