The PSA Communism Group was set up in 2012 to promote the study of communist movements, systems and ideas and facilitate scholarly exchanges across both national and disciplinary boundaries. Its first annual conference was held in September 2012 and it also organises occasional seminars as well as panels at the PSA Annual Conference. The Group has recently expaned its scope to the wider spectrum of radical left politics, both contemporary and historical. It thus aims overall to contribute to the study and discussion of left radicalism, including but also going beyond the traditional communist milieus. The Group maintains a blog providing news of current events, publications and work in progress and a register of members and their research interests. The Group's activities (and those of its members), as well as other relevant news are also posted and discussed in the Facebook group The Left Blog. The Group also supports the journal Twentieth Century Communism to which PSA members can subscribe at a reduced rateMembership of the group and attendance at its events is open to all and there is no charge or subscription fee to PSA members.
