For September we are extending the conversation on “New Ways to Define Activism” with another round of insightful essays considering activities that blur the lines of our definitions of activism. Many organizations and groups of individuals engage in activities that are similar in many respects to those carried out by social movement organizations yet we, as well as those participating, may not perceive it to be activism. For these essays we have asked our contributors to consider what may be gained or lost by stretching definitions of what counts as activism.
Thank you to all of our contributors, their essays are below.
