By Ingrid M. Hoofd
This quantity presents a serious and in-depth research of the connection among alter-globalist considering and practices and their renowned discourses. It examines the ways that a number of alter-globalist activist teams (like Indymedia, no-borders campaigns, and different types of weather swap activism), in addition to left-wing intellectuals and teachers (like Michael Hardt, Al Gore, Antonio Negri, Hakim Bey, and Geert Lovink), mobilize complex discourses, instruments, and divisions in an try and triumph over gendered, raced, and classed oppressions world wide. The e-book attracts out how those mobilizations and theorizations, regardless of (or very likely due to) their liberatory claims, are literally implicated within the intensification of worldwide hierarchies by way of many times invoking narratives of transcendence, connection, growth, and particularly of velocity. Hoofd argues that the humanist beliefs that underlie these types of practices ironically set off expanding disenfranchisements worldwide.
