Blending Scholar and Activist Identities: Establishing the Need for Scholar Activism
Quaye, Stephen John; Shaw, Mahauganee Dawn; Hill, Dominique C.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v10 n4 p381-399 Dec 2017
In this article, the authors make a case for the need for scholar activism--activism by faculty members on college campuses. Through an activist group, The Mobilizing Anger Collective, this article documents the challenges, tensions, and radical potential of scholar activism as a means of addressing injustices. Using duoethnography, the authors document the embodied experience of being Black faculty responding to an expressed need for creating space to organize, express anger, and transmute hurt and pain into community. Moreover, it introduces The Mobilizing Anger Collective as an example of scholar activism and offers insights into the complexities and risks involved in such an undertaking in the bodies the authors inhabit.
