Affinities: A Journal of Radical Theory, Culture, and Action

Publisher: Affinities Editorial Board and Publishing Collective

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? What are people doing to emulate their successes and avoid their failures? How do these experiments relate to various histories of radical struggle? How do we build lasting culture(s) of resistance and (re-)construction?

Affinities will publish work that comes from perspectives including, but not limited to, anarchism, anti-racism, autonomist marxism, disability studies, ecology, feminism, indigenous politics, poststructuralism, postcolonial studies, and queer theory. We do not seek to synthesize or prioritize any of these traditions; rather, we are interested in the ways in which they intersect, in how they can inform and critique one another while retaining their own particular approaches and questions.

Issues often follow a theme.
