Graduate Program Director
Anna Kruzynski is a professor at the School of Community and Public Affairs at Concordia University and Director of the Graduate Diploma in Community Economic Development. For the past 20 years she has been involved in many different types of social movements: from the student movement, to health and feminist community organisations in Point-Saint-Charles, to anti-globalisation direct action, to busy work with neighbours and anarchist comrades to set-up local economic and political initiatives inspired by a post-capitalist politics. She engages in participatory action research and accompanies actors involved in social change initiatives in the documentation of their process. Two major research projects include the work with the CourtePointe collective and the Popular Archives of Point St. Charles to document women’s contribution to local organizing efforts, as well as the work with the Research group on collective autonomy, a feminist anti-authoritarian research collective that studied its own movement. She is currently a member of the Community Economies Research Network and the Collectif de recherché interdisciplinaire sur la contestation, and is working on developing a new research project on the enactment of community economies in so-called Québec. Her teaching is inspired by both her activism and her research. She teaches strategies for fundamental social change, economic literacy to enable people to take back the economy, basic community organizing skills and tools for direct democracy.
