About IGS

The International Gramsci Society was founded in October 1989 at the international conference "Gramsci nel mondo" held in Formia, Italy. The aim of the International Gramsci Society is to facilitate communication and the exchange of information among the very large number of individuals from all over the world who are interested in Antonio Gramsci's life and work and in the presence of his thought in contemporary culture.

In March 1992, we published the first issue of the IGS Newsletter, in order to keep members informed about publications, meetings, and other activities relevant to the study and the interpretation of Gramsci. The IGS Newsletter has been published for several years in paper form and mailed to all members of the Society.

In 1998, we launched the IGS web site in association with the ItalNet Consortium and the University of Notre Dame, and started publishing the IGS Newsletter in both paper and electronic form. All back issues of the IGS Newsletter are available in an online searchable HTML format and as downloadable Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) files.

In early 2002, we launched the IGS Listserv and expanded the website to include more information and to continue our aim of facilitating communication and exchange on the life and work of Antonio Gramsci.

International Gramsci Society Conferences
The IGS organizes an international conference every few years. Three conferences have been held thus far in Naples (1997), Rio de Janeiro (2001), and in the cities of Cagliari, Ghilarza, and Ales in Sardinia (2007).

IGS conferences provide the occasion for an extensive examination of the status of Gramsci's influence in contemporary culture, the diversity of Gramscian studies, the various directions in which the interpretations and the uses of Gramsci's ideas and categories have been developing. The conferences have also served another, more practical purpose: they provide IGS members with the opportunity to collectively plan the work of the Society and give its organizational structure a more permanent and solid form.
