Affinities: A Journal of Radical Theory, Culture, and Action

www.affinitiesjournal.org

Affinities is a web-based journal that focuses on groups, movements, and communities that set out to construct sustainable alternatives to the racist, hetero-sexist, system of liberal-capitalist nation-states. We are interested in questions such as: What kind of experiments are out there, beyond the state and corporate forms? How are they working, what obstacles are they encountering? What are people doing to emulate their successes and avoid their failures? How do these experiments relate to various histories of radical struggle? How do we build lasting culture(s) of resistance and (re-)construction?

Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique

http://clic.janvaneyck.nl/index.php

The Jan van Eyck Circle for Lacanian Ideology Critique (CLiC) gathers researchers interested in Lacanian theory who do not consider it as a dogmatic closed system, but as an open set of tools helping us to form a critical look at/on current (post)modern culture. Therefore, CLiC wants to activate the psychoanalytical – and especially Lacanian – background of many current philosophers and critics, such as, amongst others, Zizek, Badiou, Rancière, Laclau, Mouffe, Jameson, Zupancic, Agamben, Negri, Derrida and Nancy. Insight into the Lacanian background of these theories is indispensable to discover the very core of their critical potentialities. That is why a confrontation with – and a reading of – the Lacanian text is one of CLiC’s main objectives.

CLiC is a platform for both researchers from the Jan van Eyck Academy (Theory Department) and researchers outside the Academy. Its objective is to stimulate studies in Lacanian ideology critique, to organize seminars and colloquia, and to set up publications.

ELIZA

http://www.manifestation.com/neurotoys/eliza.php3

ELIZA has almost no intelligence whatsoever, only tricks like string substitution and canned responses based on keywords. Yet when the original ELIZA first appeared in the 60’s, some people actually mistook her for human. The illusion of intelligence works best, however, if you limit your conversation to talking about yourself and your life.

Radical Psychology Journal

www.radicalpsychology.org

Radical Psychology Journal, and ejournal, and The Radical Psychology Network seeks like-minded psychologists and others to help create a society better able to meet human needs and bring about social justice. They want to change society’s unacceptable status quo and bring about a better world. And they want to change the status quo of psychology, too. They challenge psychology’s traditional focus on minor reform, because enhancing human welfare demands fundamental social change instead. Moreover, psychology itself has too often oppressed people rather than liberated them.

http://view.byu.edu

This website allows you to quickly and easily search for a wide range of words and phrases of English in the 100 million word British National Corpus . As with some other BNC interfaces, you can search for words and phrases by exact word or phrase, wildcard or part of speech, or combinations of these . You can also search for surrounding words (collocates) within a ten-word window (e.g. all nouns somewhere near paper, all adjectives near woman, or all nouns near spin). Note also that unlike some other interfaces, this one does not limit you to just those phrases that occur two or three times in the corpus — here all matching strings are retrieved.
