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.
Forthcoming in June 2014 by me and Max Haiven. Check out Zed Books for details and information about orders.
Max Haiven’s and my co-authored article “Between Success and Failure: Dwelling with Social Movements in the Hiatus” has been published in Interface: A Journal for and About Social Movements. Check out our critical reflections on the Radical Imagination Project and what lies between success and failure for movements and politically-engaged researchers here.

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.
