JSR: Journal for the Study of Radicalism—an academic journal published by Michigan State University Press—announces a call for articles and reviews for our twelfth year of issues. 

Forthcoming thematic issues will include anarchism, including Black Bloc activism, ecological radicalism, animal rights radicalism, and right-wing forms of radicalism. We are particularly interested in articles on transnational subjects as well as on lesser-known examples of radicalism, as well as in articles that include theoretical and methodological considerations.

Hopelessness

There is a widely held assumption that any intellectual or artistic labor oriented towards liberation must have the function of increasing the amount of hope in the world: that it must be motivated by hope, and must produce hope in its interlocutors. But what do we lose, and lose sight of, when hope is our sole criterion for what motivates people to action and what makes cultural production worthwhile?
