FAST CAPITALISM 14.1

We are delighted to announce that FAST CAPITALISM 14.1 is now live at the journal’s website. The direct link is: http://www.uta.edu/huma/agger/fastcapitalism/14_1/home.html.

This issue is a set of papers gathered as a memorial for Ben Agger, Professor of Sociology, former dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Arlington, and the founding editor and director of the Center for Theory.  We want to give special recognition to Alison Torres Ramos and H. Scott Clemens for their excellent editorial and production work on the issue.

Please circulate the news about this new issue, and we encourage all of you to continue recommending FAST CAPITALISM as a venue for innovative critical work in a wide range of fields. New submissions are coming to us for the next issue, 15.1, and we continue to be pleased with the quality and reach of the works we are able to publish in the journal. Finally, thanks to all of you for your continuing contributions to FAST CAPITALISM as authors and reviewers.
