Hi All – I’ve written my first long piece since the Clamor Pamphlet and it’s now up online. It’s part of an ambitious project by the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest and Team Colors, a web journal or magazine called “In the Middle of a Whirlwind.” Their announcement about it is below.
My essay is on some of the ideas that have influenced my current thinking around media in the U.S, called, “Media and Activism: Creating and Maintaining Effective Movement Media.” In it I talk about some of the people who I think are doing critical thinking and writing in this area, such as Michael Albert, Sut Jhally, Stephen Duncombe, and Bob Ostertag, with a special nod to the INCITE collective for their book, “The Revolution Will Not Be Funded.”
