Deric Shannon is a finalist to be the 2013-15 Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow, Hurford Center for Arts & Humanities. He would participate in the 2013-14 Faculty Seminar, "The Anarchist Tradition, Revisited,” led by Craig Borowiak, Political Science.
Deric Shannon engages with anarchism and related theories on a variety of levels, drawing from both scholarly and movement writing on political economy, political sociology, gender and sexuality studies, as well as fieldwork investigations of current social movements driven by these ideas. His dissertation, “Making Culture: Social Movements, Culture, and Food Not Bombs” explores how social movement theory might be informed by contemporary anarchist(ic) practices. He has also been actively involved in anarchist studies by co-founding the North American Anarchist Studies Network as well as co-editing the first scholarly collection of anarchist studies, Contemporary Anarchist Studies (Routledge 2009). Currently Dr. Shannon is serving as the project coordinator for the Human Rights Minor at San José State University, where he strives to employ teaching strategies that draw from practices of freedom, critical thought, and student participation.
