Contributors include Doug Henwood, Joel Schalit, Arturo J. Aldama, Annalee Newitz, Richard D. Wolff, John Brady, Matt Wray, Frederick Luis Aldama, Lisa Archer, Charlie Bertsch, Robin S. Brooks, Kevin Carollo, Jason M. Ferreira, Rick Prelinger Cynthia Hoffman, Elisabeth Hurst, Joe Lockard, Karl MacRae, J.C. Myers, Kim Nicolini, Megan Shaw Prelinger, David Hawkes and many others.
"Bad Subjects is a collective that seeks to revitalize progressive politics in retreat. We think too many people on the left have taken their convictions for granted. So we challenge progressive dogma by encouraging readers to think about the political dimension to all aspects of everyday life. We also seek to broaden the audience for leftist and progressive writing, through a commitment to accessibility and contemporary relevance."
- From the Bad Subjects manifesto
The Bad Subjects collective is a group of writers, activists and scholars at the forefront of political and cultural debate. Based in California, they run their own online forum and they have just celebrated ten years of on-line activism and discussion.
