For Feminist Consciousness in the Academy by Sarah Amsler

I was recently invited to reflect on the conditions of women in British universities with a group of students and colleagues exploring the politics of the corporate academy. Rather than trying to speak in some hackneyed way for ‘women’, I decided to reflect on the anti-feminist nature of the neoliberal rationalities now dictating academic life […]

Issue Introduction: Materialist Feminisms Against Neoliberalism

Mary Ellen Campbell and A.L. McCready Feminism has had many lives. Living in colonial-settler Canada, the editors of this special issue are especially attuned to the forms of imperialist, settler and liberal “feminism” that have motivated a great many social projects. Recently, these include the ostensible concern over the status of women in Afghanistan that […]

Have French Jews Veered to the Right?

Translated by Robert St. Clair[1] I. An Inter-Jewish Schism Have Jews gone right-wing? Even as the question may seem simplistic or politically incorrect, it presupposes agreement concerning the meaning of “left” and “right” in our post-cold war world of ideological disorientation. The French political commentator Daniel Lindenberg, in his Le Rappel à l’ordre: Enquête sur […]

The critical and its anchorage into the social. An introduction to the 2009 winter issue of Politics and Culture

The critical usually finds itself in a difficult relationship with the social. Its strong investment into social change renders it both necessary and uncomfortable.

Max Haiven, Food, finance, crisis, catalyst: global capitalism and the revolutionary value of food sovereignty
