The mission of the ACSJ interest group is to promote research and teaching in the intersections of activism, communication and social justice of contemporary life. The aim is to push the boundaries between theory and practice and between scholarship and activism by encouraging and facilitating dialogues and engagements.

This roundtable will address the question of how scholarship connects to action in the world to promote social justice. The panelists will discuss this issue based on their own experiences as scholars of activism and as politically involved subjects.
