Love Makes Us More Militant - Marina Sitrin
A radical and kinetic start to 2021! We sit down with Marina Sitrin, mother, dreamer and associate professor to discuss not just movements in time, but in space — journeys that shift paradigms and societies — from Greece to Argentina to upstate New York.
Marina Sitrin – a mother, dreamer and associate professor at Binghamton University who writes about, and participates in, societies in movement, specifically looking at new forms of social organization, such as autogestión, horizontalidad, prefigurative politics and new affective social relationships. She grounds much of her work in ethnography, oral history and sociological narrative. She is the co-editor, with Colectiva Sembrar of Pandemic Solidarity: Mutual Aid During the COVID 19 Crisis; author of Horizontalism: Voices of Popular Power in Argentina; Everyday Revolutions: Horizontalism and Autonomy in Argentina; the co-author of They Can’t Represent US!: Reinventing Democracy from Greece to Occupy; and the forthcoming The New Revolutions from Social Movements to Societies in Movement.
