In 1996 the Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) was founded to financially assist radical writers. We saw a need to assist the further development of anarchist and antiauthoritarian revolutionary thought. We sought to do this by providing grants to writers, so they could do things like take time off work and hire child care. The IAS supports people involved in social movements to reflect on their work, and to share their insights and ideas, in part by publishing their essays in our journal Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, as one of our Anarchist Interventions book titles, or by directing and assisting them to other publishers.

Since 1996, the IAS has provided tens of thousands of dollars to over eighty people, including Jessica Lawless, Marina Sitrin, Matt Hern, Tamara Lynne, Kristin Herbeck, Eric Forman, Anne Yukie Watanabe, Dawn Paley, China Martens, Will Munger, Kristian Williams, and Theresa Warburton (to name a few). These folks and countless others have produced compelling and timely work, which has appeared in movement journals, books, and pamphlets.

The IAS is a volunteer organization, run collectively, with a paid, part-time administrator. We function through the mutual aid and generous support of people like yourself. We recently lost our non-profit status, and as we struggle to regain it, we really need your help.
