Global Justice Protest Events and the Production of Knowledge about Differences
Daro, Vinci E. F.
McGill Journal of Education, v44 n1 p39-54 2009
Recent social movement activities--in particular, transnationally-coordinated global justice mobilizations--require participants to work across substantial differences in languages, cultural backgrounds, political visions, and organizing traditions. Negotiating such differences is an active, adaptive, and learning-intensive process. In contrast to more institutionalized settings such as schools and workplaces, where tropes like "multiculturalism" figure prominently in treatments of "difference," I argue that knowledge production in social movement settings cultivates a more intensely relational and dynamic disposition towards differences. (Contains 10 notes.)
