about pro/visions
pro/visions is a new magazine/journal (double blind peer-reviewed) that seeks to push critical theory beyond the academy and into the streets. Therefore the content will reflect rigorous (and playful) thought but using language that is accessible to anyone. We seek to create a space for theory to meet praxis (and the ivory tower the people/s). Think Gramsci’s “organic intellectual” meets Chuck D and they get into a fist fight–with the world.

“immigration against the Empire”

This issue situates immigration (and other forms of nomadism) as a disruptive event against Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri’s concept of Empire. Between Arizona’s new immigration law in the United States and the French government’s response to immigration, it would seem that as the “Third World” pops up in the “First World” neo-liberal policing comes into view of the Global North. In light of the various reactions to these events, responses from the radical Left, in and outside of academia, need to be formulated in order to map resistances and the role of the immigrant and the exile within the Empire.
