hors du troupeau, “the last cloud”

After a silence of nearly twenty years, it’s a pleasure to relaunch Libertatia Laboratories. The new project, hors du troupeau, undoubtedly scores low on the quirkiness scale, next to old friend like Guinea-Pig Fleet and Elephant after Elephant. […]

Rambles in the Fields — 2022 Calendar

Featured articles

I’ve published the first of what will probably be three calendars for 2022, available through the print-on-demand site Lulu. The images in “Rambles in the Fields” may be familiar, since several of them served as feature images during the first run of “Rambles in the Fields of Anarchist Individualism.” All are products of my daily walks, which are themselves an integral part of my work routine, particularly as the pandemic drags on.

Emile Henry — Trial Declaration

Featured articles

Art is an important, but not always emphasized part of the Libertarian Labyrinth project—and has been since the beginning. In the Galleries you can find images from versions of the archive doing back to some of its earliest forms. In the current version of the collection, the digital collages serve as a place to share bits of the fruits of research, beyond the realm of texts and translations, but also as glimpses of the “lost continent” of the anarchist past as it appears to me.

Corvus Editions

I am not sure there is any way forward but to gather together the fruits of the last couple of decades or research and present them for use, as if there was an audience ready and willing to use them. And since we’re talking about works deemed insufficiently commercial even for the niches filled by anarchist publishers and academic presses, the way to do that is through print-on-demand volumes. So the next phase of the Corvus Edition story involves a line of collections published through Lulu. […]

Our Lost Continent: Episodes from an Alternate History of the Anarchist Idea, 1837–1936

Our Lost Continent

My goal overall is to produce a work that is at least potentially useful and shareable among anarchists of a variety of tendencies, as well as students of “the anarchist idea.” (The phrase is one of Nettlau’s that was obscured in translation.) But, to be honest, I am also very interested not to get too deeply involved in certain kinds of debate about how inclusive anarchist history ought to be. I expect that the best version of the work would hold little interest for those for whom anarchism does not appear still nascent in some important senses. For those willing to at least weigh the possibility of really sharing a historical tradition, I have some hope of presenting a relatively compelling case, but for others, honestly, I got nothin’… […]
