Science for the People

Jump to: 1970 | 1971 | 1972 | 1973 | 1974 | 1975 | 1976 | 1977 | 1978 | 1979 | 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 | 1986 | 1987 | 1988 | 1989

Science for the People was the left-wing bi-monthly periodical published by Scientists and Engineers for Social & Political Action (SESPA). SESPA, which soon took on the name Science for the People (SftP), emerged from the 1960's New Left in the United States. Shaped by the Antiwar and Civil Rights Movements, SESPA cohered a radical critique of contemporary science out of university-based activism and left-wing caucuses in various scientific professional associations. The organization was closely identified with its member-subscribers' confrontational tactics against proponents of violent and oppressive applications of science. SftP authors made vital contributions to many areas of science activism, including the anti-racist and feminist critiques of sociobiology and evolutionary psychology, which had attempted to re-legitimize biological determinism in the 1970's. There have been various attempts to revive the group in different forms, including one effort in 2002 and another that has emerged since a 2014 conference on the history and legacy of SftP. Further materials on the history of the organization can be found at the conference website and in an edited collection of primary sources produced by organizers of the conference. Physical archives are also held at M.I.T. and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The new Science for the People will begin publishing in 2018 at https://scienceforthepeople.org/
