Take a look at a new article by me and Radical Imagination Project co-director Max Haiven about the possibilities, pitfalls, and promises of solidarity research with social movements and academic activism. Published in Social Justice Studies, this article is open-access and part of a great double issue about academic activism.
I’m pleased to announce that The Movement of Movements: Struggles for Other Worlds (Part 1) edited by Jai Sen and Peter Waterman is now out in ebook! I was so honoured to be asked to contribute a chapter to this amazing volume that also includes the work of Taiaiake Alfred, Andrea Smith, Xochitl Leyva Solano, David McNally, Guillermo Delgado-P, David Featherstone, Peter Waterman, and many more.
It’s out! Hot of the presses – The Radical Imagination: Social Movement Research in the Age of Austerity (Zed Books) by Max Haiven and me. Buy it from Zed (outside of North America), from Fernwood (in Canada), and from Macmillan (in the US).
My article “Subterranean Currents: Research and the Radical imagination in the Age of Austerity” has just been published in Studies in Social Justice, part of an excellent issue based on a workshop about social movements and social movement research held at the University of Windsor last spring (at the, sadly and predictably, now-defunct Centre for Studies in Social Justice). My article is about our work in The Radical Imagination Project, solidarity research with social movements, and continuities of struggle. Check it out and see the rest of the issue here.
My extended review of Janet Roitman’s book Anti-Crisis. Find it in Anthropological Quarterly or see it here.
Forthcoming in June 2014 by me and Max Haiven. Check out Zed Books for details and information about orders.
