Welcome to the official website of the International Gramsci Society (IGS).
The IGS was founded in 1989 and is a non-profit organization whose aim is to facilitate the communication and exchange of information among the very large number of individuals from around the world who are interested in the life and work of Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937), the Italian socialist, political theorist, and activist.
The IGS website includes a biography and chronology of Antonio Gramsci's life, an archive of photographs, documents, and on-line articles related to his life and work, as well as links to his writings. In addition, the IGS website includes academic and authoritative essays and articles on Gramscian studies and concepts related to Antonio Gramsci's work, as well as back issues of the IGS Newsletter.
The International Gramsci Society also publishes the International Gramsci Journal, a peer-reviewed, biannual electronic journal. The journal publishes scholarly articles on Antonio Gramsci’s life and work, the influence of his thinking on social, political, economic and cultural history and the application of his concepts to contemporary life.
