Second Issue of Raging Chicken Press is Up!

The second issue of Raging Chicken Press is now up!  In my experience, the second issue of a new publication is always difficulty to get out.  A lot of energy gets spent mobilizing for the launch of the inaugural issue and just when you think you’ve got a little breathing room, deadlines for the next issue are just around the corner. I am quite pleased at how well this issue came together.  Not only did we get some stellar submissions, all the contributions this time round are interconnected. I hope that you like our second issue as much as the first!

This issue of Raging Chicken Press features:

I hope this issue will generate as much excitement as our last issue.  I’m also already looking forward to our September issue which will be a “Back to School” issue.  The call for submissions for the September issue will be out very, very soon.

We’ll also be rolling out some exciting new things for the fall.  Beginning in September, Raging Chicken Press will be holding monthly “meet-ups” the week after an issue is published — locations to be announced, so stay tuned.  These meet-ups will allow Raging Chicken Press contributors, fans, family, and friends to have a chance to talk and network. From the beginning, Raging Chicken Press has sought to contribute to building progressive, social movements not just write about them.

In the coming months I will also increase my calls to help support the work of Raging Chicken Press.  As you know, you can help contribute to our work by using the links on the right side of our site to give donations, pick up some Raging Chicken Press gear, or simply shop at Amazon.com or Powells.com.  I hope we can keep Raging Chicken Press a community supported independent, progressive media site.

So, let us know what you think!

    Editor Cero,

    I have spent part of my summer reading Matt Taibbi’s book Griftopia. It has been an infuriating exercise to say the least. Another part of my time has been devoted to my class on modern Latin America, particularly the practice of neoliberalism in places like Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador.

    I see elements of both at Kutztown. We lost our Early Learning Center, but gained a Chick-fil-a. We are about to build a new academic building with larger classes for our electives now, not just our introductory courses.

    My question is this: how do I communicate with other interested faculty? Sometimes it seems as if my phone and email doesn’t work very well, particularly with my union. What should I, and other faculty like me, do?

    Keep up the good work.
