The book that I’ve co-edited with Jeffrey Juris is finally out! Insurgent Encounters: Transnational Activism, Ethnography, and the Political (Duke University Press) brings together a group of politically engaged ethnographers to examine the dynamics of contemporary transnational social movements. The result is a book that both challenges and forges paths beyond the dominant understandings of social transformation, political possibility, knowledge production, and the relation between intellectual labour and sociopolitical activism.
