Summary, etc
  • The dynamics, politics, and richness of knowledge production in social movements and social activist contexts are often overlooked. This book contends that some of the most radical critiques and understandings about dominant ideologies and power structures and visions of social change have emerged from those space. Written by contributors working closely with diverse social movements, NGOs, and popular mobilizations in the Asia/Pacific, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean, it articulates and documents knowledge production, informal learning, and education work that takes place in everyday worlds of social activism. This book points the way for a new form of scholarship where scholars, who are themselves committed activists, engage critically with the mass movements. This is an international contribution to developing knowledge production and learning from within, and for social movement organizing. It demonstrates that our social movements are actively producing knowledge and providing crucial resources in our struggles for social justice and liberation. Going beyond simplistic calls to engage in `scholar-activism,' this book re-centers intellectual production within social movements themselves. It does not presume a romanticized notion of movement organizing, but brings a critical lens to the forces of co-optation and normalization within both the academy and activist arenas.
