A little bit of context
Many of us recognize the need for a serious U.S.-based journal of rigorous Marxist analysis that can speak to a new generation of leftward-moving radicals, a forum open to activists and theorists leading struggles against racism and police violence, against imperialisms of all kinds, challenging austerity and exploitation, organizing for migrant justice, fighting for gender and LGBTQ liberation, tackling the climate crisis, and doing grassroots organizing in unions and on campus.
But there’s a problem
Spectre promises to be such a journal, but launching it requires start-up funds: to put the journal into print from its first issue, to launch a website with timely content and international reach, to pay contributors and a managing editor.
Here’s what we’re doing about it
Spectre's editors--Cinzia Arruzza, Tithi Bhattacharya, Kate Doyle Griffiths, Zachary Levenson, Holly Lewis, David McNally, Charlie Post, Ashley Smith and Vanessa Wills--have come together to plan for building a sustainable print and web journal open to a wide range of Marxist theories and practices. we have already lined up a series of exciting full-length articles from a mix of highly renowned authors and emerging writers who may not yet be widely known but certainly will be; activists and organizers, academics and intellectuals.
You can join us
We know that capitalism is a global system that permeates every aspect of our lives, and our analysis must also be global, and in depth. Spectre will be a home for the kind of grounded theoretical contributions necessary to explain and raise important questions about the connections between social struggles, politics, and the economy in North America and around the world.
