Pre-Order Abolition Journal Issue 1: Abolishing Carceral Society

24th Sep 2018

The Abolition Collective is thrilled to announce that Issue One of Abolition: A Journal of Insurgent Politics, is now available for pre-order from Common Notions Publishing!


Abolition: A Journal of Insurgent Politics is a collectively run project supporting radical scholarly and activist research, publishing and disseminating work that encourages us to make the impossible possible, to seek transformation well beyond policy changes and toward revolutionary abolitionism. The journal publishes work that engage with the meaning, practices, and politics of abolitionism in a range of historical and geographical context.

Our inaugural issue articulates a wide interpretation of abolitionism, including: prison and police abolitionism, decolonization, slavery abolitionism, anti-statism, anti-racism, labor organizing, anti-capitalism, radical feminism, queer and trans* politics, Indigenous people’s politics, sex worker organizing, migrant activism, social ecology, animal rights and liberation, and radical pedagogy. Recognizing that the best movement-relevant intellectual work is happening both in the movements themselves and in the communities with whom they organize, the journal aims to support activists, artists, and scholars whose work amplifies such grassroots activity. Abolition features a range of formats and approaches from scholarly essays, art, poetry, multi-media, interviews, field notes, to documentary sketches each presented in an accessible manner.
