Institute for Anarchist Studies
|Motto||"Promoting critical scholarship exploring social domination and reconstructive visions of a free society"|
The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) is a non-profit organization founded by Chuck W. Morse in 1996, following the anarchist-communist school of thought, to assist anarchist writers and further develop the theoretical aspects of the anarchist movement. It has given grants to over 40 writers, including to Lorenzo Komboa Ervin, Peter Lamborn Wilson, Murray Bookchin and Saul Newman.
Projects the institute has assisted include the Latin American Archives Project, a multilingual online database of works by Latin American anarchists, and the Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conferences, which are open talks and discussions on aspects of the anarchist movement.
In 2009, the institute updated their website, and featured a new online publication of Perspectives on Anarchist Theory.
The Institute publishes a biannual journal, Perspectives on Anarchist Theory. Projects are in the works[when?] including a collaborative book series with AK Press that will publish Anarchism and Its Aspirations by IAS board member Cindy Milstein, followed by books written by two other IAS board members, Mark Lance and Shiri Pasternak.
