Luke Stobart

Barcelona

Activist in social movements in Barcelona, Madrid, and London, turned writer and academic. An over-specialist on Catalonia and Spain. My blogging for The Guardian, Jacobin, CTXT, and New Internationalist has been praised by surprising people – good and bad! I write from a critical Marxist perspective but try and engage with and learn from strong representatives of other viewpoints. I work hard on my writing because people already have too much to read. I interpret conferences and lecture on international politics. When I grow up, I want to be a professional footballer.
