Reclamations Journal

This is the blog of Reclamations, an online journal launched at UC Berkeley in 2009.

As the struggle for public higher education materializes across the country – in spectacular but also in less visible, more everyday forms – the blog seeks to bring together the ideas, texts, events, and people that animate the emerging political front against the privatization of education. It intends to collect, curate, and make available resources and information whose circulability and dissemination we believe can help strengthen our many collective efforts.

Designed as an open and dynamic multimedia forum, the blog features content by our special contributors, the editorial team, and our readers. While Reclamations’ editorial collective is based in Berkeley and Oakland, California, we invite and seek contributions from the many sites of struggle and action taking place across the state and beyond.

From our Journal: 

Following 30 years of state policy designed to use strategic deficits to “starve the beast” of public services, California’s neoliberal government has capitalized on the latest economic crisis to launch aggressive expropriations of the public domain, swiftly privatizing and resegregating the state’s vast system of public education. At the same time, a movement to reclaim the losses and emancipate the commons has quickly emerged and has been growing more diverse and persistent. A number of collective actions and voices across the UC, CSU and CCC campuses have signaled the opening of a new political front, which carries the promising potential to expand its geographical and political horizons.

As positions, tactics, and activities proliferate across campuses, we find a pressing need for a public forum to address recent developments. Reclamations is not an organ of any particular group or alliance. Rather, it aims to embrace a heterogeneity of forces while remaining focused on the broader aspirations of the movement.

Reclamations seeks to provide an independent space for critical reflection, analysis, and debate. It envisions a terrain where ideas can be refined and positions articulated in relationship to each other to gain more traction. We thereby hope that Reclamations would function metabolically: by providing a space for dialogue and productive disagreement, Reclamations would serve as a vehicle for deepening our collective efforts.
