This book focuses on anti-racist scholar-activism in the margins of universities in the United Kingdom. The book raises questions about the future of Higher Education in the UK, and shines a spotlight on those academics who are working within, and often against, their institutions. Through the accounts of participants, the authors argue that another university is not only possible, but is essential. Working towards a manifesto for scholar-activism in the books conclusion, the book explores a range of concepts that might be thought to guide scholar-activism, including reparative theft, working in service, digging where you stand, and constructive complicity. Throughout, the authors show scholar-activism to be something that is complex and multifaceted, and better thought of as a form of practice, rather than an identity that can be attained.
