Anarchist Studies an international peer-reviewed inter- and multi-disciplinary journal of anarchism research which has been publishing novel, refreshing and provocative arguments for over twenty years. Shaped by the scholarship of contributors rather than editorial commitments the journal publishes research into the history, culture, theory and practice of anarchism. ‘Many academic journals are interchangeable’ the late, great Colin Ward remarked, ‘but Anarchist Studies is full of material you will discover nowhere else’.
We are interested in publishing work that
- re-evaluates the anarchist record, considering issues of literature, art, history, culture, philosophy, social critique and political action
- examines the analytical purchase of anarchism as a current of critical political action
- applies anarchist principles and ideas to inform methods of research or to develop approaches to problems, issues or events
- discusses, analyses, contextualises or explains anarchist actions
Recent highlights include special issues on Herbert Read (ed. Danielle Child) and George Woodcock (ed. Matthew Adams and Allan Antliff) and articles on anarchist women in Imperial Japan and contemporary anarchism and intersectionalism.
