A Conversation with AK Thompson: Join activist, writer and scholar AK Thompson for an informal discussion about his recent book, Keywords for Radicals. What is the power of language and how does the struggle for what words mean reflect the very struggles that those words describe? Lets talk it out!
AK Thompson got kicked out of high school for publishing an underground newspaper called The Agitator and has been an activist, writer, and social theorist ever since. Currently teaching social theory at Fordham University, his publications include Black Bloc, White Riot: Anti-Globalization and the Genealogy of Dissent (AK Press, 2010) and Sociology for Changing the World: Social Movements/Social Research (Fernwood, 2006). Between 2005 and 2012, he served on the Editorial Committee of Upping The Anti: A Journal of Theory and Action. His newest book which he co-edited is Keywords for Radicals: The Contested Vocabulary of Late-Capitalist Struggle, also published by AK Press.
