As any writer, editor or publisher know, sometimes project deadlines are just impossible to hold on to. When we reach this eventual realization, some falter, some quit, and some fight through the missed deadlines, nonresponsive co-conspirators and naysaying haters and persevere.
Today we are those preservers.
Despite a multitude of challenges along the way, today we are proud to announce the publication of:
Affinities: A Journal of Radical Theory, Culture, and Action [Volume 6, Number 1]
This special edition journal issue features six great articles from movement scholars seeking to untangle to web of rhetoric surrounding political violence, social movements and terrorism. I have the great privilege of working with Andrew Culp, Justin AK Helepololei, Lindsay Balfour, Timothy Vasko and Will Potter as well as out great editorial staff Adam Barker, Richard Day and Jaclyn Nadon.
I have written the first paper, “The Framing of (Counter) State Violence: Challenging the rhetoric of non-State actors, political violence & ‘terrorism’” and was responsible for holding the issue together. After quite a bit of time, I am happy to present, Affinities 6:1.
