Who we are


We have built these archives from the ground up through the hard work of volunteers around the world. All our volunteers work in more or less complete autonomy, held together by our charter, bylaws, and cooperative work with one another. Volunteers come into the project to do work on what they like — there is no top down or centralized planning structure — so if we don't have something in these archives, it is because no one has volunteered to contribute it! :) If there is a certain author or work you're looking for that we do not have, volunteer to put that information that is important to you on the internet so it can be shared with others!

The volunteers who have built the Marxists Internet Archive are from all over the world — from Indonesia to Greece, from the US to the United Arab Emirates. The political practices of MIA volunteers are as diverse as our different backgrounds, age, and race. Most of us are not professors, teachers, students or otherwise involved with academia. We are all involved with activities other than building this archive, from our day-jobs (and we hold a diverse array of them!) to being with our families and friends. The MIA has been built simply by workers who give a few minutes of labour at the end of the day — Keep this in mind when you write to us with a suggestion — the best way to build this archive is to help in making it happen! :)
