New issue of Stasis is out: #1 2014, Revolutions and protest movements


The second issue of STASIS brings together quite diverse articles. Each is excellent in its own right and was individually considered by the editors and reviewers. Nevertheless, the articles are united by the common theme of revolutions and social movements, a topic that has defined the global political agenda over the last three or four years. Apart from its obvious topicality, revolution was chosen as the focus of this issue because it refers back to the journal’s title, which in Greek denotes a kind of revolution. The issue is both interdisciplinary and multipolar. All the articles strive towards concrete empirical or historical analysis while producing new theoretical generalizations, which will be one of the journal’s most privileged modes as STASIS moves forward.
