Resources for Theories & Practices of Radical Social Change
Resources for Theories and Practices of Radical Social Change: the Alternative Press Index
Every social movement of radical action requires a linked movement of radical ideas. The New Left of the 1960s and 1970s developed a radical culture in journalism and academic research which challenged mainstream practices. The Alternative Press Index was founded in 1969 to document these cultural practices. This talk will discuss aspects of this development through some examples of the new periodicals which originated during this time. There will be some focus on an example of class analysis which attempts to clarify social relationships relevant for strategic practice. (The Albin O. Kuhn Library archives the periodicals of the API).
