  1. Hi there! Just writing to let you know that the link here is broken (or my computer is majorly failing). I’m guessing the new correct link is this: http://www.akpress.org/contract-contagion.html. Anyway, dropping a comment because I’ve read several articles of yours online and really enjoy your work. I’m ordering your book now! The description of your book on the AK site almost perfectly fits with my interests–thinking of a politically-engaged Marxism beyond teleology and transcendence and into the uncomfortable spaces of uncertainty (as influenced by queer/feminist theory and post-structuralism). Any advice for a future grad student looking to follow in your footsteps (or, at least, in their vicinity)? It’s been hard navigating my interests around disciplinary boundaries here in the States. Would love a chance to discuss your insights (though I see you’re based in the UK)?

  2. Thanks Jim, that’s really sweet. Hopefully the citations in C&C are also useful for generating a list of people in the US who are working around similar questions and in interesting ways, but I doubt it’s an exhaustive list. I hope that helps, and if you’re still stuck down the track, email me and I’ll see if I can be more specific.

    The link should be working now.
