New PDF release: Ambiguities of Activism: Alter-Globalism and the Imperatives

By Ingrid M. Hoofd

This quantity offers a serious and in-depth research of the connection among alter-globalist pondering and practices and their well known discourses. It examines the ways that a number of alter-globalist activist teams (like Indymedia, no-borders campaigns, and varieties of weather switch activism), in addition to left-wing intellectuals and teachers (like Michael Hardt, Al Gore, Antonio Negri, Hakim Bey, and Geert Lovink), mobilize frustrating discourses, instruments, and divisions in an try and conquer gendered, raced, and classed oppressions all over the world. The ebook attracts out how those mobilizations and theorizations, regardless of (or almost certainly due to) their liberatory claims, are literally implicated within the intensification of world hierarchies through time and again invoking narratives of transcendence, connection, development, and particularly of velocity. Hoofd argues that the humanist beliefs that underlie these kinds of practices sarcastically set off expanding disenfranchisements worldwide.
