How can activist-oriented scholars navigate the long-term path to publishing and the urgent need for creative intellectual interventions in our current political moment? This panel, organized by 2nd year PhD students in the Brown American Studies Department, brings together a diverse array of scholars, activists, artists and publishers who straddle the lines between academia and activism, prose and politics, to consider alternatives to traditional academic publishing and the role of political writing and publishing in today’s movements for social justice.
