Rethinking Intellectual Activism
We invite you to join us as we explore the potential meanings and practical implications of “intellectual activism,” which, as a political praxis of knowledge production, validation, and distribution, can take many different forms. By focusing on the notion of “intellectual activism,” the conference aims to open a critical discursive space to question and re-imagine the role of the university in maintaining and/or disrupting the systems and operations of power within and through which the institution functions.
