What do organizers and activists know and how do they know it? Activism, organizing and social movements can be rich sites of learning, knowledge production and theorizing, and these struggles for change can best be understood if we engage with the intellectual work that goes on within them. This seminar will draw on Aziz Choudry’s new book, Learning Activism: The Intellectual Life of Contemporary Social Movements (University of Toronto Press, 2015).

Aziz Choudry is Associate Professor in the Department of Integrated Studies in Education, McGill University and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, University of Johannesburg.

Conference in English only. For more information: susan.spronk@uottawa.ca
