CRAC focuses on groups whose organizational forms are related to self-management, or collective autonomy, in Quebec. However, we are also aware of the fact that highly interesting experiences are taking place elsewhere. The Links section is a way of making some of these experiences known.

Anarchist Archive
Anarchist Archive

The Anarchist Archive is devoted to the study of anarchism, with a special focus on the history of the movement in Canada. Holdings include the papers of British anarchist and art critic Herbert Read; activist and prison abolitionist Jim Campbell; Keith McHenry, founder of the international activist organization Food Not Bombs; and Ann Hansen, author of Direct Action: Memoirs of an Urban Guerrilla. Issues relevant to the collection include Indigenous struggles, anti-war activism, ecological militancy, prison abolition, decolonization, feminism, queer politics, and radicalism in the arts.

Founded in 2005 by Director Allan Antliff, the Anarchist Archive has a special mandate to collect and preserve anarchist-related materials, including posters, photographs, art work, videos, audio recordings, journals, pamphlets and zines, books, oral histories, correspondence (written and digital), organizational records, and other items.  The Archive also houses a Digitization Centre devoted to scanning materials for preservation purposes and to facilitate on-line accessibility for researchers across Canada and internationally.

The Anarchist Archive is a public institution and research inquiries are welcome.
