Social Resistance in Times of Austerity

Social Movements in Times of Austerity

In September 2014 I was invited down to Boston, MA by the good folks at Boston University and the University of Massachusetts to talk about the radical imagination, engaged research, and resistance in time of austerity. Listen to the audio recording of “Social Resistance in Times of Austerity,” a panel discussion featuring me and Kostis Kornetis and recorded at Boston University by WBUR.

The Radical Imagination on Talking Radical

While we were at the Peoples’ Social Forum in Ottawa, ON, Max Haiven and I sat down with Scott Neigh to talk about the Radical Imagination Project and solidarity research in the age of austerity for his show Talking Radical. Listen to the full interview here.
