Abstract

From the Editorial Board: Fugitives from Justice Luc´ıa I. Mock Muñoz de Luna, with the Ra´ıces Collective It’s never seemed harder—or perhaps more hopeless?—to take up the work of writing for and in the academic world. But of course, we’re not the first to feel this, nor the last, and writing worlds and imagining new maps for how we want to be in these worlds is nothing new; it is the work that has always been done (Morrison, 1992; Crawley, 2020). So, the work continues, as will life, even in the wake of this crisis and all the willful disasters (Sharpe, 2016) we have wrought. We write this editorial in the midst of a pandemic and a continued fight for Black life that has brought the cruelty of our world order into focus: thus, we use this space and time to write about our desperation with the academy as we have come to know it, particularly in this moment, and thus to call for an embrace of fugitivity as a method of dismantling the university and its white supremacist roots and functioning. We offer a few of our own tentative steps here, and look to the important work featured
