In a decidedly anti-intellectual moment, exemplified by such recent phenomena as denials of science, defunding of universities, and distrust of “facts,” Intra-Public Intellectualism examines the relationships among qualitative inquiry, truth telling and social activism. 

With contributions from scholars and activists around the world, the book addresses three key tensions in the field of social inquiry. The first tension concerns the proliferation of digital environments and virtual spaces, exploring how the “public” in public intellectualism might be reconsidered. The second tension concerns the ongoing critiques of truth and subjectivity, exploring how these disruptions change the work of the intellectual. The third tension concerns the growing scientific and philosophical rejection of static material worlds, exploring what becomes of social responsibility and justice when agency extends beyond human subjects. 

Intra-Public Intellectualism will be a must read for those interested in the roles of the intellectual in the academy and beyond and those keen on rethinking critical social inquiry for the twenty-first century.

Perfect for courses such as: Introduction to Qualitative Research | Critical Qualitative Inquiry and Critical Theory | Social Context and Education | Foundations of Education | Cultural Studies and Public Pedagogy | Curriculum Theory | Social Justice and Education | Advanced Qualitative Methodology | Interpretivist Inquiry | Posthumanist Inquiry | New Materialist Inquiry | Arts-Based Inquiry

“In this contemporary era of racialized and political reckoning and welcomed civil disobedience globally, the editors and contributors of this book offer unique insights that inspire new and radical ways to engage in intra-public intellectualism. Through contemplative and decolonizing imaginaries, dialogues, and interludes, each chapter disrupts boundaries and expands possibilities for re-envisioning the role of academics and critical qualitative research in theorizing and transforming public social spheres. This edited book is a must read for those seeking a compelling and diverse compilation of perspectives on public intellectualism.”

Michelle Salazar Pérez, Associate Professor of Early Childhood Education, The University of Texas at Austin

“In a world that too often seems beyond resuscitating, Intra-Public Intellectualism: Critical Qualitative Inquiry in the Academy is an injection of hope for critical qualitative inquirers committed to public causes, no matter how lost. While offering plenty of provocations, interventions, and lines of flight, in sync with the post-philosophies prominent throughout the book, each edited chapter is also a demonstration of how to (still) think and do responsive and responsible public critical qualitative work that matters. It is a positive reminder that the public is still worth fighting for and we critical qualitative researchers have and must soldier on.”

Jennifer R. Wolgemuth, Associate Professor of Measurement and Research, University of South Florida

“This powerful and timely collection of essays answers the call for a critical inquiry that advances a long over-due public social science.”

Norman K. Denzin, Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Communications, Sociology, and the Humanities, University of Illinois
