We organize, conditions permitting, an annual international conference. These conferences bring together academics, activists, and the community to dialogue, reflect, and debates. Principally, these conferences serve as a convergence point where the community of academics and activists can continue to strengthen relationships or build new bridges of solidarity and collaboration. Similarly, they facilitate the exchange of knowledge between activists, academics, and people from the community.
The editorial project consists in the publication of texts that facilitate the exchange of theory pertinent to political movements, provide a space for the publication of texts by political and social activists, as well as making those texts accessible to the public. Similarly, it seeks to mobilize that intellectual production in support of the political movements. The intent is to gather voices from academia and from people on the ground in order to produce an archive of knowledge produced with and from social movements.
We currently publish texts in three formats:
1. Pamphlets: this format consists in the publication of brief, 700-2000 word texts which are more accessible to a broader public. They can be theoretical interventions, political commentaries, poetry, and/or visual art. They are designed such that they can be printed out, stapled and disseminated by anyone. Click here
2. Manuals: this format consists in the publication of practical knowledge, which typically does not make it into the archive, particularly if it relates to social or political activism. As such, this format seeks to gather that practical knowledge and make it available to a broader public. Similar to the pamphlets, they are designed such that they can be printed out, stapled and disseminated by anyone. Click here
3. Dossiers: this format consists in the yearly publication of longer, peer-reviewed articles from across disciplines centered around the topic of that year's conference. In addition, it includes the publication of manifestos from political and artistic collectives and organizations, poetry, and visual art. Dossiers are published with the support of the Rutgers Advanced Institute for Critical Caribbean Studies (RAICCS). Click here
