This article, published in a top-ranked radical Geography journal, discussed the Quebec student strike of 2012 that mobilized hundreds of thousands of students and supporters in collective action. Emphasizing the “broader dreams of a student movement now sparking the popular imagination”, some activists began calling for a “rêve général illimité” (unlimited general dream). Dr. Spiegel argues that creative tactics altered the relationships amongst private and public space, time and responsibilities in the Quebec student strike, broadening participation by generating spaces of collective care.
