Interest Groups: Activism, Communication and Social Justice

Welcome to the ICA Activism, Communication and Social Justice (ACSJ) Interest Group!

The Activism, Communication, and Social Justice (ACSJ) Interest Group promotes research and teaching in the intersections of three key aspects of contemporary life as captured in its name. It strives for diversity in the representation of its membership and embraces pluralism and boldness in theory and methodology. It pushes the boundaries between theory and practice and between scholarship and activism by encouraging and facilitating dialogues and engagements.

Candidates should submit their candidate statement to the current chair Anne Kaun (anne.kaun@sh.se) and vice-chair Todd Wolfson (twolfson@rci.rutgers.edu) by 23 July.
