The principal aim of the Anarchist Studies is to coordinate and promote the re-investigation of anarchism as social praxis. New convenors/committee members will be announced shortly. In the meantime, please contact Alex Prichard for information about the group.

For the time being, this is the main site for the Anarchist Studies Network. We are re-building the site at and will alert members when this is complete.

For membership inquiries - and to register on the Anarchist Studies discussion list - please email Benjamin Franks


The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”


Convenors can view the SG Handbook here.
