NAASN 2019 (en)
The 10th Annual North American Anarchist Studies Network conference, entitled Emergent Horizons, will take place at the Little 5 Points Community Center in Atlanta, GA on May 31 - June 2, 2019.
This year’s conference theme, “Emergent Horizons,” invites thought and discusion that critically examines, expounds, and encourages projects of world building and social transformation. Horizons are both the limit of perception and the referential lines that orient movement and geography. In the same manner, projects of social and political change have aspirational goals of building new worlds and new realities. In following this theme, this year’s conference invites us to think through and beyond the limits of what we as scholars, activists, and militants perceive of and comprehend as revolutionary struggle in the past, present, and future. How is resistance and resilience taking shape? What are the contours of the world we live in? How can we expand our perceptions and practices to shape our present and imagine our futures? In short, what is on the horizon?
You are invited to participate!
NAASN is a network engaged with the production of knowledge both within and without institutional walls. We are particularly interested in including marginalized voices and perspectives. Our work encourages the breaking down of the barriers between disciplines, as well as those between the academic, non-academic, and anti-academic. From the streets to the lectern, we encourage all those interested in the praxis of anarchism or anarchists to attend this conference.
How To Participate
Show up at the date and time, listen, ask questions, and discuss the topics at hand.

We are looking for donations from anyone who has the financial capacity to help fund the conference. The suggested donation is $15 for the weekend, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We are just trying to cover the cost of renting the space for the weekend. You can donate via the GoFundMe fundraiser page. If you cannot donate large amounts, don't worry, many small amounts go a long way. Anything helps!
