This is a call for a new series that grows out of a panel held at ISA earlier this spring. We have a few posts in process that come from participants on that panel, but we want to open it up to other contributors under the hashtag #ScholarActivism.
Questions that you could explore include:
- What’s your idea of the appropriate balance between scholarship and activism?
- What’s been your experience?
- Does one’s activism potentially serve as grist for critiques that academics are indoctrinating students?
- Is activism different from policy engagement?
We welcome your thoughts on these questions and others.
