Matt Roberts appointed to the Editorial Advisory Board of Critical Times
May 1, 2017 - 12:05 am

Matt Roberts has been appointed to the Editorial Advisory Board of Critical Times: Interventions in Global Critical Theory. The journal seeks to reflect upon and enact forms of transnational solidarity that draw upon critical theory and political practice from various world regions. It seeks perspectives that shed light on contemporary practices of authoritarian and neo-fascist politics, nativist and atavistic cultural formations and forms of economic exclusion, as well as the spaces and forms of life where different, emancipatory social worlds might be imagined and articulated. The journal will be a crucial part of the emerging International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP), which received a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in December 2016. The UCI Libraries received a sub-award from this grant, which will be used to develop research resources for the ICCTP and its members.
