Conference celebrating 120 years since Engels’s death

A conference celebrating 120 years since the death of Friedrich Engels has just come to a close here at Nanjing Normal University. We even had a representative from the CPC discipline committee welcoming us to the conference. It was sponsored by the Marxist Research Centre at Nanjing Normal University, the Marx-Engels Research Society and the CPC Central Compilation and Translation Bureau. We had scholars from Japan, Belgium, France, Germany, Australia, USA, UK, China, and a good contingent from Russia – where they speak of a revival of Marxism. Among many highlights, the best for me was when Professor Shevchenko said that he would present in the language of Lenin. His colleague, Professor Burov, translated into Chinese with a heavy Russian accent (he had grown up in China).
