About This Site
This site is an attempt to establish a space of encounter for international anti-authoritarian theory and activism — essentially a clearinghouse for theoretical essays from international sources with an emphasis on translation — with some space left over for cultural and linguistic commentary.
For a long time now, I have been acquainted with various schools of thought that seem to be covering similar ground and/or that I believe would benefit from dialog with one another but that are separated by language. It is my hope that this site will be a step toward overcoming that divide.
Please note that anything posted on this site should be regarded as essentially in draft form. Virtually nothing here has been reviewed by anyone other than the translator and everything here is subject to further revision for style and accuracy. If anything reads funny or sounds a little off, please feel free to bring it to my attention and I’ll review it as soon as possible.
About the Site Administrator
Joe Keady is a freelance German/Spanish>English translator based in New York City. He specializes in legal, academic, commercial, and some technical translations. Get in touch. He’s really quite friendly most of the time. And if you are a translator and the mission of this site sounds interesting to you, I have some things I’d like to talk to you about.
Incidentally, if you notice that I am posting regularly, it probably means that I’m short on paid work at the moment. A fundamentally anti-work philosophy might be about the only thing I’ve been consistent about since the onset of puberty a good quarter of a century ago, however I do have a landlord who thinks that both capitalism and state enforcement thereof are just peachy. Feel free to throw me a project, if you’ve got one. Just saying.
Drop me a line!
