Chapter 11: Reflections of an activist-academic

Débora de Castro Leal


Chapter 11 describe what activism has meant for the author, what academic frameworks she has found to be useful in organizing her thoughts and, in turn, what her activist activities have contributed to her academic development. The first year of a PhD has required a constant dialogue and a reflective process that is embedded in understanding the history, culture and local context of the people she has worked with in Brazil. In this journey, the author shares not only her experience and literature but also doubts, frustrations and hopes for building a bridge to span the the gap between academic theory and activist intervention that she has experienced.
