Following a successful call for short contributions on the theme of academic activism, PaTHES has published a selection of diverse and thought-provoking reflections on the theme, mirroring and complementing the complexity and richness of views originally captured in the PaTHES webinar Towards a new academic activism (April 2020).

"The diversity of perspectives and generosity of reflections emerged in the collective debate almost naturally demanded that we kept the momentum going, revisiting and refining our thinking in relation to academic activism. Considering the relevance of the topic and the interest sparked by the event, we felt it was important to try and capture the complexity, richness and tensions in the discussions by inviting short written contributions."

Among the issues addressed by those who have responded are:

  • The need to discuss and promote academic activism today
  • The justification of academic activism
  • The plural material context and spaces of academic activism
  • The expression and positioning of academic activism
  • What make activism academic, and vice-versa
