Alternate Routes Launch

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The following event is being hosted by our allies at Alternate Routes:

Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research is pleased to announce the publication of Uniting Struggles: Critical Social Research in Critical Times, our thirty-fifth anniversary edition. Articles range from an examination of post-9/11 Hollywood cinema to climate-induced migration, neoliberalism and the global economic crisis, labour struggles, left political regroupment, knowledge production in social movements and re-thinking socialism. Included, as well, are short analytical pieces, editorials and interviews with noted activists and academics, and a number of contemporary book reviews. Attached you will find a copy of our book cover, table of contents, editorial introduction and conference/journal call for papers. We would like to encourage you to distribute the said attachments to anyone that may be interested.

To celebrate the publication of AR 2012, we will be having a book launch on Thursday December 1/2011 from 3-4:30pm at Loeb A720 Carleton University. This will include presentations from recent contributors:

*Randall Germain, Chair Department of Political Science: "Power, the State and Global Politics After the Great Freeze: Towards a New Articulation"
