Anarchism in the Boonies: Place-Making, Technology and Resistance in Rural Canada
MetadataShow full item record
Looking at various locations around Canada, this thesis aims to better understand the ways in which modern Canadian anarchists are reimagining spaces in both rural and urban contexts. Through focusing on the use of technology and Do-It-Yourself ethics, this research demonstrates the unique ways this "scene" creates new forms of rural living and political opportunities outside of urban activism. In addition, this builds on existing ideas of how new media and technology can be tinkered with in politically meaningful ways--in this case melding aspects of punk, anarchist and "traditional" rural aesthetics and ethics to create fluid spaces of possibility.
