Books by Pietro A. Sasso:
In an era of corporate media and “alternative facts”, academics committed to justice cannot simply rely on disseminating new knowledge, but must step out of the ivory tower and enter the streets as activists. The Activist Academic serves as a guide for merging activism into academia.
Following the journey of two professors, the book offers stories, frameworks and methods for how scholars can marry their academic selves—involved in scholarship, teaching and service—with their activist commitments to justice, while navigating the lived realities of raising families and navigating office politics. This volume invites academics across disciplines to enter into a dialogue about how to take knowledge to the streets.
Perfect for courses in: Higher Education and Society; Foundations of Higher Education; Legal Issues in Higher Education; College Student Development Theory; Academic Issues in Higher Education.
