Call For Article Proposals

I have been mentioning this publication favourably since I stumbled across the first issue while we were still living in Los Angeles. In addition, I have recently become a member of its advisory board. Not sure exactly what that is going to mean for me, but it is an interesting project that has published interesting things, so if you have any relevant and radical ideas that are burning in your brain and trying to get out, then please submit a proposal as described below!

UPPING THE ANTI: A Journal of Theory and Action
Call for Article Proposals for Issue 4

Dear friends and comrades,

The editors of Upping the Anti invite you to submit proposals for articles to be published in Issue 4 of Upping the Anti, which will be launched on May 1, 2007.

Upping the Anti is a radical journal published by a pan-Canadian collective of activists and organizers. We are dedicated to publishing radical theory and analysis, as well as debates, roundtables, and interviews about struggles against capitalism, imperialism, and all forms of oppression.

Our first three issues have been distributed widely across Canada and the US. People have also picked us up in Australia, Argentina, Cuba, England, France, Germany, India, Kenya, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, and Venezuela.

If you have an idea for an article or interview, we invite you to submit a 200-300 word proposal. The proposal should identify the main question you plan to explore and how this question relates to the political vision of our journal.

We are particularly interested in publishing articles pertaining to the development of revolutionary perspectives, as well as to the problems and promise of anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-oppression politics within the Canadian state today.

The final deadline for submitting articles is Monday March 5th.

Interested in writing an article but don't think you can meet our March deadline? Don't worry: it's never too early to submit an abstract for issue #5, which will be released on September 1st, 2007.

Please send all abstracts, submissions and inquiries about our project to uppingtheanti(at)

Content from our previous issues is available online at

Guidelines for submission are available at

If you have any questions about the journal and the upcoming issue, or if you want to help out by doing distribution or promotion, please let us know.

In solidarity,

Aidan C., Tom K., Sharmeen K., and Andrew T.
