Hey! Emily here. I’m a student in NYC, from New Mexico. As Daisy already mentioned in her introduction, I blog with her at Our Descent Into Madness. I used to write/rant about politics fairly regularly, but it’s been a while. Long enough that much of my worldview and general approach has changed since then (at least I hope it’s matured), and continues to do so. I’m curious myself to see how another go at political blogging and analysis reflects this.
In school I’m studying a wide array of subjects before settling into a major next semester; presumably a ‘Social Inquiry’ major. This area of study may encompass many aspects of politics, cultural studies, sociology and…
In other words, I go to a school that allows for much flexibility here. So far, I’m mostly interested in studying the ways in which people organize to implement transformative, structural change and the forces which impede their success; how domination works on a large scale, and how it must be countered on behalf of those pursuing justice. Both in theory and in practice. Broadly speaking, of course. I spread my interest thin, as I’m sure you’ll see through my regularly scheduled Monday posting.
I’m flattered to have been invited to contribute to Revolutionary Act and am eager to see where this experience will lead.
