The Loughborough ARG:
provides an informal space for the discussion, exploration and analysis of anarchist ideas and practices;
supports anarchism research across scholarly disciplines in the University;
helps raise the profile of anarchist studies through scholarship and public engagement;
co-ordinates with national and international networks to promote collaborative work and anarchism research;
organises seminars for researchers working on aspects of anarchist history and politics.
The ARG was established in 2008. It contributes to the social, political and cultural theory strand in the Centre for Research in Communication and Culture. The group collaborates locally with the Politicized Practice Research Group and is networked internationally through the Anarchist Studies Network (a specialist group of the UK Political Studies Association). The group also collaborates with the Politicised Practice Research Group in the Critical Citizenship, Activism and Art initiative.
The journal, Anarchist Studies, is co-edited by ARG members, Matthew Adams and Ruth Kinna. ARG member Jim Donaghey edits the Anarchist Studies Blog.
Our seminars are free and open to all.
