Interface journal: voices of dissent: activists' engagements in the creation of alternative, autonomous, radical and independent media

Via Mayo Fuster-Morrell:

enjoy the new issue of "Interface: A journal for and about social movements" on the topic: "Voices of dissent: activists' engagements in the creation of alternative, autonomous, radical and independent media". See below. Cheers! Mayo

Here below the announcement of the new issue of Interface on voices of
dissent that I co-edited with other colleagues and activists. The new issue
coincides with the launch of the new Interface website that we fully
renovated. We hope that you find Interface and its new website useful and
interesting. Comments welcome!

As you may notice, the website is currently bilingual (but we aim at
translating it in many other languages): English and Italian. If you are
interested in collaborating (as translators, book reviewers, authors,
anonimous referees etc.) do not hesitate to contanct me!

Finally, a few words for those amongst you who are interested in feminisms,
women movements and women in movements: we have a new call for paper open on
this topic. We wait for your articles, action / teaching / research notes
and so on and so forth.

make the site more accessible and support multilingual material and
translations in particular. The site is currently at
