Document Type: Research Article
Publication date: 01 December 2016
The Radical Americas Journal explores the historical, political and social contexts that have underpinned radicalism in the Americas, engaging fully with the cross-currents of activism which connect North, Central and South America along with the Caribbean. The interconnected histories of power and protest are rarely contained within national boundaries, and a full understanding of radicalism in the Americas, therefore, requires hemispheric scholarly approaches.
The journal’s definition of radicalism is broad: taking inspiration from the words of José Martí, radicalism is here presented as any action or interpretation which ‘goes to the roots’. All scholarship which takes a radical approach is welcomed, even if it is not concerned with the study of radical activism per se, and any work which provides a truly systemic critique of existing structures of power, or challenges conventional interpretations of the past, will find a home at the Radical Americas Journal.
