A new issue of Society and Space was just released. It is the first with Sage, after Sage purchased the journal’s previous publisher Pion. As part of this transition, this first issue is open access, along with the content of the 2002-2014 volumes.
This first issue carries an article by Paul Routledge and Kate Driscoll Derickson which is of particular interest for the “Breaking Consent” project, detailed previously on the blog. I’ve cut-and-pasted the abstract below.
Situated Solidarities and the practice of scholar-activism
Paul Routledge and Kate Driscoll Derickson
Drawing on an analysis of an ongoing collaboration with rural peasant movements in Bangladesh, we explore the possibility of forging solidarity through practices of scholar-activism. In so doing, we consider the practice of reflexivity, reconsider forms of solidarity, and draw on the concept of convergence spaces as a way to envision sites of possibility. We mobilize the notion of situated solidarities to propose an alternative form of reflexive practice in scholarship. We then posit that there are six ‘practices’ that provide a useful schematic for thinking through the opportunities for the construction of these solidarities.
