We are interested in radical politics. This means writing that considers poor, working class, and marginalized groups. Explorations of identity, neoliberalism, building a broad-based left movement, and resisting oppression: these topics are the most interesting to the editorial board.
Currently we'd especially like to see more about:
In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.
