I am very pleased to announce the next installment in the COMM-ORG papers collection:
Patricia N. Van Pelt-Watkins, Does Theory Matter in Social Movement Practice in the Midwest? A Descriptive Study
This is a book-length scientific study of how activists and organizers think about theory and research. It dispells some myths that activists have no use for research, or that only educated activists care about scholarship. It also finds a severe shortage of skill and funding resources for the important intellectual work of activism. If you want the short version of the work, you can go directly to Chapter 5.
Thanks to Patricia for contributing this work.
