Living Commons is a collective composed by academics, artists, and activists - many of us all three at once - whose practices constitute what we are calling The Underground University. We envision our work as a manifestation of the autonomous spirit actualised in the struggles against global capital, in particular its deadly attack on the public university and its mission.  Towards the goal of maintaing, expanding, and radicalising the aims of critical thought and radical political engagement, our publishing initiatives, books and the magazine, have been designed to create an open-ended space for ongoing conversations around themes they raise. The revenues from book sales will be used to support students, departments, and interdisciplinary programs who suffer the most from recent budget cuts.
