Reimagining Academic Activism

Policy Press

This chapter uses a micro-political framework to examine the layers of connection between the construction of feminist activist identity and social change. In relation to various external accountabilities, members of the collective would shift and change their feminist identity. At the same time, members of the collective were negotiating a shared politics and equitable organisational practices/norms. Instead of attempting to erase these differences, the collective aimed to organise through difference to maintain solidarity. The contradictions, challenges, and work of feminism, activism, and academia are productive and necessary to engage in a multi-directional approach to social justice.
