Journal Description

Affinities is a web-based journal that focuses on groups, movements, and
communities that set out to construct sustainable alternatives to the
racist, hetero-sexist system of liberal-capitalist nation-states. We are
interested in questions such as: What kind of experiments are out there,
beyond the state and corporate forms? How are they working, what
obstacles are they encountering? How do we build lasting culture(s) of
resistance and (re-)construction? As one of the goals of Affinities is to
acknowledge and strengthen the links that exist between academic,
activist, and artistic communities, we are committed to publishing
academic and
activist writing, as well as other forms of radical cultural production.
