Ambiguities of Activism: Alter-Globalism and the Imperatives by Ingrid M. Hoofd

By Ingrid M. Hoofd

This quantity offers a severe and in-depth research of the connection among alter-globalist pondering and practices and their renowned discourses. It examines the ways that numerous alter-globalist activist teams (like Indymedia, no-borders campaigns, and sorts 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 troublesome discourses, instruments, and divisions in an try and triumph over gendered, raced, and classed oppressions world wide. The booklet attracts out how those mobilizations and theorizations, regardless of (or probably as a result of) their liberatory claims, are literally implicated within the intensification of worldwide hierarchies by means of time and again invoking narratives of transcendence, connection, development, and specifically of velocity. Hoofd argues that the humanist beliefs that underlie some of these practices mockingly set off expanding disenfranchisements worldwide.
