IA TLC - The Activist Academic Engaged Scholarship for Resistance, Hope and Social Change
Imagining America (IA) invites community cultural producers, faculty, and students from across the national IA network to join an upcoming Teaching and Learning Circle (TLC) webinar. IA TLC is an online learning community that builds conversations about the opportunities, joys, and challenges of designing and delivering community and creatively engaged courses and projects


Join IA's Faculty Director Erica Kohl-Arenas who will be facilitating a dynamic conversation with Colette Cann and Eric DeMeulenaere, authors of The Activist Academic, Engaged Scholarship for Resistance, Hope, and Social Change, with special guests Margo Okazawa Rey and John Saltmarsh.

In an era of corporate media and “alternative facts,” academics committed to justice cannot simply rely on disseminating new knowledge but must step out of the ivory tower and enter the streets as activists. The Activist Academic serves as a guide for merging activism into academia. Following the journey of two professors, the book offers stories, frameworks, and methods for how scholars can marry their academic selves, involved in scholarship, teaching, and service, with their activist commitments to justice, while navigating the lived realities of raising families and navigating office politics.
