Notes for week 11

Gert Biesta may well be regarded as an activist scholar. The introduction and then the whole paper, for Notebook #3, is well worth a read.

There are many different ways to think about activism and academic work. This short piece by Don Mitchell captures much of the debates. He uses an interesting ploy in the short introduction.

If the theme of activism is of particular interest, there are useful papers that cite Mitchell's essay1.
