Item description for Constituent Imagination: Militant Investigations, Collective Theorization by Stevphen Shukaitis, David Graeber & Erika Biddle...

What is the relationship of radical theory to movements for social change? In a world where more and more global struggles are refusing vanguard parties and authoritarian practices, does the idea of the detached intellectual, observing events from on high, make sense anymore? In this powerful and unabashedly militant collection, over two dozen academic authors and engaged intellectuals-including Antonio Negri and Colectivo Situaciones-provide some challenging answers. In the process, they redefine the nature of intellectual practice itself.

The book opens with the editors' provocative history of the academy's inherent limitations and possibilities. The essays that follow cover a broad range: embedded intellectuals in increasingly corporatized universities, research projects in which factory workers and academics work side by side, revolutionary ethnographies of the global justice movement, and meditations on technology from the branches of a tree-sit in Scotland. What links them all is a collective and expansive re--imagining of engaged intellectual work in the service of social change. In a cultural climate where right-wing watchdog groups seem to have radical academics on the run, this unapologetic anthology is a breath of fresh air.
