Biography

Juris is a co-author of Global Democracy and the World Social Forums (2008, Paradigm Press). His latest book, Networking Futures: The Movements Against Corporate Globalization (2008, Duke University Press), explores the cultural logic and politics of transnational networking among anti-corporate globalization activists in Barcelona, including their participation in mass actions and transnational networks such as Peoples Global Action and the World Social Forum. Articles on this topic and the relationship between new media and grassroots social movements have also appeared in journals such as Ethnography, Critique of Anthropology, Mobilization, and the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences. Most recently, Juris is co-editing a volume with Alex Khasnabish called Insurgent Encounters: Ethnography, Activism, and the Transnational, and he has been writing a new book based on a year of ethnographic fieldwork regarding grassroots media activism and autonomy in Mexico.
