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.
Full audio of a feature-length interview I did with C.S. Soong of Against the Grain Radio on KPFA. We talked about capitalism, the myth of the middle class, the radical imagination, and building movements against and beyond the status quo. It was a real pleasure to talk with C.S. and to be a part of such an important, grassroots, social justice program.
