Focus and Scope
SITUATIONS addresses the lapse of the radical imagination in both left theory and in popular consciousness. It explores the social conditions and lived experiences that have led to this
malaise and supports explanations that do not reduce political phenomena to a reflection. SITUATIONS publishes critical assessments of radical political thought, identifying what is new and different in politics and culture today. SITUATIONS publishes critical examinations of social movements and popular attempts to guide political change. SITUATIONS fosters modes of thinking that recognize the creative role that society plays in its own production. Mindful of its role as a journal, SITUATIONS brings political theory and questions of strategy back to the fore as pragmatic and political necessities. SITUATIONS attempts to
overcome reductionist thought by searching out the revolutionary impulse that comes from the abstract, the impulse to break with lived experience and seek new ways of understanding and situating ourselves within society.
