Zach Carlson

With an academic background in history and anthropology, Zach focuses on the history and theory of the party, and communism as a whole. His goal is to create an informative and accessible supplement to difficult theory and whitewashed history. To him, a strong understanding of both theory and history is critical for any dedicated Marxist. Currently working on his Master’s at Illinois State University, Zach intends to move on to a PhD program soon after graduation to focus on left and labor history.
