Social Movement Struggles, Learning & Knowledge-Making: In Memory of Aziz Choudry (1966-2021)

Professor Aziz Choudry passed away in 2021. He made significant global contributions to social movement learning, knowledge production in community organisations, activist archives, research methodologies, immigrant workers’ education, anti-racist/anti-colonial education and related fields. He will also be remembered for his unstinting, generous and energetic devotion to the students he supervised and taught as well as the encouragement and affirmation he provided to the many, mainly young, academics and movement activists he mentored. His influence will continue through the countless people he inspired globally. This Special issue will emphasise the complex inter-relationship and entanglements between Aziz’s scholarship and his political activism and engagement with social movements, and seeks papers that explore some of the many themes that Aziz wrote about and engaged with politically through his life. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Social movement learning and knowledge-making;
  • Social movements and surveillance;
  • Higher education and social justice/injustice;
  • Education and anti-racism struggles (inside and outside of academia);
  • Popular Education and Walter Rodney’s legacy;
  • Migrant workers’ struggles,
  • Indigenous peoples struggles, environmental activism,
  • Neoliberalism in and through education;
  • Palestine, Education & BDS movement;
  • Education, Trade Unions and Social Struggle;
  • Capitalism/Anti-Capitalism and the Global Justice Movement.

We especially welcome contributions from early career researchers/activists.
