Why are we doing this?

Many sites that publish research put up a number of barriers to entry, such as application fees or strict academic requirements. This all works to prevent a true reflection of the diversity of ideas and approaches that exist within and outside of universities.

We want to help break down those barriers and meet with anyone who has ideas and a desire to get them heard.

While we’re keen to welcome new writers and thoughts to AnarchistStudies.Blog in particular, the knowledge shared will be transferable to approaching other outlets, and self-published blogs too.

What will you need?

If you have an idea you’d like to discuss and develop, please feel free to bring it along. This isn’t a requirement though, there will be time to chat about potential topics as a group. No one will be put on the spot to share unless they’re comfortable to.

You can also send us questions in advance if there’s something you’d like to hear covered.

What is AnarchistStudies.Blog?

An online, rapid publication format featuring anarchist comment and critique, partnered with Anarchist Studies journal. It brings you bursts of informed opinion and critical debate on anarchist activism, anarchist academia, and the wider world as viewed through an anarchist lens.

Editors Jim Donaghey and Cassidy Ferrari will be facilitating the workshop.

Herd Mentality, Deathbed Radicalism and Other Things On My Not-To-Do List

This article takes a personal and reflective view of forms of activism that have come to prominence in recent years in the UK, such as Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil. Nora Ziegler critiques the ways in which unequal distributions of power create barriers to participation, and the limitations of deploying concepts rooted in misanthropy or individualism as a means of overcoming apathy and climate denial. The article is informed by several years as a live-in volunteer at the London Catholic Worker, which operated as a house of hospitality for refugees and migrants, while also hosting activists and engaging in activism.
