Thinking from Oakland: Urban Study in the Town

The Urban Study editorial collective (Trisha BaruaErin MC EL, and Alex Werth) is seeking local writers, artists, and activists for an anthology of work that carefully and creatively thinks Oakland from Oakland. 

What does Urban Study in Oakland look, sound, and feel like?

How can we resist the displacement of local communities by centering local ways of knowing the Town?
