The Futures of Solidarity: A Discussion with Professors Virginia Doellgast (Cornell) and Michael McCarthy (Marquette) Is solidarity a thing of the past? Or will it carry forward into the future, and if so, how? What are the institutional and social arenas for and forms of contemporary solidarity? In this feature, editors Agatha Slupek and Assaf Bondy discuss these issues with Professors Virginia Doellgast (Cornell, USA) and Michael McCarthy (Marquette University, USA), respectively.

Deadline 15th March Note from an Editor: Futurity and The Politics of Imagination Whose policy proposals, whose political programs, whose visions for a future society can be imagined; that is, conceived of as possible, as enact-able, and not merely dismissed as outlandish and unfathomable?

Interview with SASE President Akos Rona-Tas I grew up in Budapest and began college as a literature major interested in literary theory and philosophy, but I soon became drawn to sociology. At that time sociology was a young discipline in Hungary, as it had been banned for decades as a bourgeois pseudo-science by the Communist state.
