We are The World Transformed - a 4-day politics, arts and music festival running alongside the Labour Party Conference, working to build left power both inside and outside of Parliament.

CfP: Criptic Identities. Historicizing the Identity Formation of Persons with Disabilities Across the Globe
In recent years, 'identity politics' has evolved as a controversial, but also prolific concept within political, academic and activist debates. A growing body of literature sheds light on different assumptions about identity as a concept that is as much related to expressions of individuality and subjectivity as it is to specific social groups, typically described as outsiders on the margins of society and the political mainstream.

The papers of Balazs Nagy (c1927-2015) illustrate the international nature of Trotskyism. Nagy took the pseudonym Michel Varga for some of his writings. His papers, which are held at Senate House Library, University of London, have just been catalogued online. Most of Nagy’s life was spent as an exile in France. Unsurprisingly his archives reveal much about contemporary French Trotskyism but there is a great deal of material on Trotskyism in the UK from the mid-1970s onwards.
