Translated title of the contribution: Black Marxism and the antinomies of racial capitalism

Nikhil Pal Singh

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article, originally published in English as a chapter in Colleen Lye and Chris Nealon’s 2022 edited collection After Marx: Literature, Theory, and Value in the Twenty-First Century, charts a course through the tensions inherent to “racial capitalism” as a historically developing concept. Drawing Cedric Robinson into dialogue with the more Marx-friendly work of Stuart Hall, Singh revisits both figures’ positions on the articulation of race and class. It is published as an accompaniment to Selim Nadi and Sophie Coudray’s landmark translation of Marxisme noir, in hopes of encouraging further such efforts in the ongoing study of racial capitalism on both sides of the Atlantic.
