Just out: a new special issue of Space & Polity on the thought of Jacques Ranciere and how it might be useful for political action today. I edited the special issue, which includes articles by:
Where is the political? Insurgent mobilisations and the incipient “return of the political”
Mark Davidson and Kurt Iveson:
Occupations, mediations, subjectifications: fabricating politics
Cleveland’s Hough riots of 1966: ghettoisation and egalitarian (re)inscription
Rancière and revolution
Kate Booth and Stewart Williams:
A more-than-human political moment (and other natural catastrophes)
You can find more information, and abstracts, here.
My introduction to the special issue is available free to the first 50 people who ask for it, which you can do here. My long article, “Ranciere and Revolution,” argues that we need to augment Ranciere with Deleuze and Guattari’s political thought. It is available as well, though I can’t find a reprint link in my Taylor and Francis account, so you can just e-mail me to get that one.
A special issue of Space & Polity is just out, guest edited by Michelle Ann Miller and Tim Bunnell. You can see the table of contents here. Looks like a great resource!
