This two-day conference explored the critical theory of Herbert Marcuse. 

The conference coincided with the 50th anniversary of the publication of Marcuse's most famous book, "One-Dimensional Man: Studies in the Ideology of Advanced Industrial Society," and our recent discovery of an early draft of this book that was given to Brandeis by Marcuse himself. 

All conference talks were held in the
Rapaporte Treasure Hall in Brandeis' Goldfarb Library.

Registration for the conference was free.
