  • Sociology for Changing the World

    Social Movements/Social Research

    Edited by Caelie Frampton, Gary Kinsman, AK Thompson and Kate Tilleczek     January 2006

    This book for activists and researchers on building connections between social movements and social research sets out practical ways activists can map the social relations of struggle they are engaged in and produce knowledge for more effective forms of activism for changing the world. Grounded in political activist ethnography, this work does not see social movements as “objects” to be studied from the outside. Rather they are to be analyzed from the standpoint of insiders’ knowledge and based on the daily struggles the social movements are engaged in. Sociology for Changing the World allows people to learn how to do sociology for social transformation.
