  By Harsha Walia I’m still waiting on the feminist response to Gomeshi and rape culture and ‘why women don’t report’ that goes beyond the generic feminist (read: white middle class) answer of fear/disbelief/stigma.

  By Mark Naison That is a great question. I teach a senior seminar on Affirmative Action where we deal with the doctrine of “disparate impact” which has been substantially weakened by the Supreme Court since the court affirmed it in the 1971 case Griggs v Duke Power.

  By Vernon Huffman The best hope for long term human survival appears to lie in the development of resilient communities. By applying local resources at a sustainable rate to meet genuine local needs, resilient neighborhoods fit into the natural order, rather than attempting continuous growth based on exploitation.

  By Harsha Walia Regarding the incident in Ottawa yesterday: 1. Immediately characterize the suspects as racialized (“suspects appear dark”) and link to an Othered political or religious ideology (if possible, not only link, but prove that violence is inherent to said religion or culture).

The Anarres Project for Alternative Futures takes its inspiration, in part, from the imaginative work of Ursula K. Le Guin.  For decades, her speculative fiction has woven together fantastic worlds with reflections on the nature of human life and the meaning of a socially just world.

  By Phoenix Callida   The goal is to make you feel worthless. The goal is to make you shut up. The goal is to make you feel hopeless. But it’s a lie. All of it.
