Hope as a practice in the face of existential crises

Hope as a practice starts from ourselves, from where we are and our own capacities, and overflows that which contains us.

We show how our resident-activism as members of three community organisations is distinct from, yet also entangled with, scholar-activism and the struggles, contradictions and potential solidarities found in the UK’s marketised universities. The result is a capacity to see the human in each other, a necessary step in resisting resurgent fascist politics and addressing existential crises.
