Anti-racist scholar-activism

‘For the undercover guerrilla scholars, thieves for reparation, freedom-dreamers, and those pretending professional compliance while living another secret life, this is your book. Treasure it as a record, guide, and manifesto. Share it with your best-loved comrades and take heart. But don't show your boss.’

Gargi Bhattacharyya, author of Rethinking Racial Capitalism: Questions of Reproduction and Survival

‘This is an excellent and welcome addition to literature on racism, activism, and higher education, and a unique resource for university students who are trying to navigate higher education institutions and think through the contradictions, tensions, and possibilities of being “in” the university, but not necessarily becoming “of” it, while committed to a politics of anti-racism. A necessary and compelling book.’

Aziz Choudry, editor of The University and Social Justice and Activists and the Surveillance State

‘As a polemic on commitment and agency and an irreverent critique of the neoliberal university, Anti-racist scholar-activism is not just one book but many. A primer on the history of anti-racist thought, and a consideration of the epistemology and pedagogy of anti-racism. Expect to be provoked on this rollercoaster of a read.’

Liz Fekete, Director, Institute of Race Relations

‘Including compelling readers to understand more fully the theories, meanings, and significance of the foundational organising concepts of the book – anti-racism and scholar-activism – Joseph-Salisbury and Connelly engage scholar-activist readers to reflect critically about our own work through the experiences of their study participants. Who among us has not faced situations described in the volume, but how can we better understand those, do better work, and become more authentic as we face dilemmas and contradictions as scholar-activists? These are the interventions the book makes into the readers’ lives. Ending the book with “A manifesto for scholar-activism” challenges us to examine our praxes and is emblematic of the clarity of their own.’
