about this item

Learning Activism is an original new book that attempts to bridge two distinct fields – social movement theory and adult education – by asking questions about what has been learned in recent social movements such as Idle No More, Occupy, and the Arab Spring. It is intended to fill the gap between social movement practice as it occurs on the ground and social movement theorizing as it occurs within formal education.

Drawing from the author's own extensive experience as an activist, as well as examples from a variety of movements (global and transnational activism, community organizing, environmental activism, etc.), this book offers an accessible and lively peek into the lives of ordinary citizens-turned-activists. Why do people become activists? What do they learn in the process of becoming an activist? In answering these questions, Choudry carves out a new space for intellectual life in activist practice.
