The Communism Specialist Group of the Political Studies Association hosts a website providing news of current events, publications and work in progress and a register of members and their research interests. This is intended to supplement the annual publication cycle of Twentieth Century Communism – fulfilling some of the information sharing roles previously met by the bi-annual Communist History Network Newsletter (1996-2008). The group also organise an annual day conference as well as occasional seminars and panels at the PSA Annual Conference.
Membership of the group and attendance at its events is free to PSA members. The group also supports the journal Twentieth Century Communism: a journal of international history and members of the group can subscribe to the journal at the reduced rate of £20 p.a.
Non-PSA members who wish to be added to the group’s mailing list should contact the group’s convenor. Non-PSA members are also welcome to attend any event organised by the group on payment of a small charge. The standard non-members’ subscription rate to Twentieth Century Communism is £30 pa
