22 Readings on Research, Activism, the Academy and Conduct: Think Tank Reader Vol. VI

22 Readings on Research, Activism, the Academy, and Conduct is Volume VI in the Think Tank’s reader series. Developed by Heath Schultz and Katie Hargrave in May 2010 for Open Engagement: Making Things, Making Things Better, Making Things Worse, the reader explores how to conduct research and deploy it in the world.

22 Readings on Research, Activism, the Academy and Conduct is part of an occasional series of educational readers by the Think Tank that has yet to be named. This reader was created as part of the conference Open Engagement: Making Things, Making Things Better, Making Things Worse.

In compiling this reader we are interested in what it means to research and how to implement that research in a socio-political context. How does one breech the barriers that render theoretical inquiry and expression useless? What is the role of the student? What is the role of the intellectual? What might the researcher look like or create if she exists outside the academy? How are we implicated in activist projects and communities? We are interested in thinking through what it means to embody research and produce affective action in its wake.
