In the video below Michael Hardt and Grant Farred discuss Hardt’s vision for SAQ’s future.
SAQ is pleased to welcome editor Michael Hardt. Hardt is a professor of literature and Italian at Duke
University and is the co-author of Empire (2000), Multitude
(2004), and Commonwealth (2009)
with Antonio Negri.
Hardt will introduce a new section, "Against the Day," which will appear in each issue of the journal and will focus on contemporary political issues. Future topics include Obama at midterm and student activism in the University of California system. Hardt sees himself continuing SAQ's long tradition of cultural and political engagement: "I don't want to change SAQ too much. . . . we're still only a small portion of the larger history."
Upcoming issues for 2011 include: "Theory Now," edited by Grant Farred and Michael Hardt, "Sovereignty, Indigeneity, and the Law," edited by Eric Cheyfitz, N. Bruce Duthu, and Shari Huhndorf, and "Digital Desire," edited by Ellis Hanson.
