“Social movement schools: sites for consciousness transformation, training, and prefigurative social development,” co-authored by Assistant Professor of Sociology Jaime Kucinskas, was recently published online in Social Movement Studies.

The article explains how social movement schools are important and often unrecognized sites that train committed activists by deeply socializing them emotionally and cognitively in movement culture and ideology, often through embodied group practices, and develop movement culture and new tactics.

The authors cover a range of different movements’ training schools including the American labor movement, the civil rights movement, a provocative feminist activist group called FEMEN, and the mindfulness movement.
