*All talks, papers by date (423+)*

In progress: a list of what I have published or formally presented by year, with links wherever possible, plus a few unpublished pieces that were finished, but for one reason or another, didn’t get published in the end. I do not list courses/ modules/ political schools I have run, or ephemera or newspaper citations. I have included some specific inputs I wrote and presented for workshops and political schools. There are still some gaps e.g.  some talks, some translations, some booklets/ pamphlets, some things I have forgotten, stuff online at dead sites etc.
