Alterpolitics: Special issue of the journal Focaal

The latest issue of Focaal – Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology has recently been published.  This special issue is titled Inspiring Alterpolitics and features a range of articles under this theme. This issue concludes with the Forum section.  The Forum section seems to be open access, but the other articles seem to be behind a pay-wall.  If your institution does not have access to the journal, I would suggest emailing the authors directly and asking for a copy.
