What Moves Us: The Lives and Times of the Radical Imagination

We’re thrilled to announce the publication of What Moves Us: The Lives and Times of the Radical Imagination, an edited collection of essays, interviews and reflections by many of the amazing activists and thinkers that have in some way been part of The Radical Imagination Project led by Alex Khasnabish and me (Max Haiven) since 2010. This volume is a publishing collaboration between the Radical Imagination Project, Upping the Anti and Fernwood Publishing.

Emerging from the Radical Imagination Project, a social movement research initiative based in Halifax, Canada, What Moves Us? brings together a diverse group of scholar-activists and movement- based thinkers and practitioners to reflect on the relationship between the radical imagination and radical social change. Combining political biography with movement-based histories, these activists provide critical insights into the opportunities and challenges that confront struggles for social justice today.

In original essays and interviews, these radical thinkers from across Canada and beyond contemplate the birth of their own radical consciousness and the political and intellectual commitments that animate their activism.
