C/LS 8(1/2) Spring 2009

$30.00

There are two patterns we see characterizing the works that comprise this double issue: vivencias and critical witnessing. It also provides a powerful structuring thread for the works gathered together in the first section, which also collectively engage with caring as both a political and politicized practice. The works in the second section of this volume all engage in the practice of critical witnessing as they concentrate on the performative forces of lived experience in the making of social change. They explore how our relationships—as they run the spectrum from fiscal and emotional to political and intellectual exchanges—provide the grounding point for our making, feeling, and doing of theory and politics.
