Scholar Activist Network

This is a stub homepage for the Scholar Activist Network, an attempt to bring together academics who are working in and with social movements. If you’d like to sign up to the network please do so HERE.

Being a researcher involved in social movements is a great privilege, and learning how to use our positions well is important. At the same time some of us can feel caught between academia and social movements, experiencing a tension between the two, or struggling to juggle priorities. The compartmentalisation of academia can also prevent those of us in similar situations from meeting each other, so this network aims to break down those boundaries and help us learn how to support each other.

The network aims to put on workshops and events very soon, and this page or an evolution of it will contain more detail when we have it.
