Social Movement Learning (2006)

A Review of the State of the Field in Adult Learning

The authors argue that social movements may be one of the richest sites for learning outside of the formal school system. They define social movement learning as learning by persons who are part of any social movement or learning by persons outside of a social movement as a result of the actions taken by the social movement or simply because of its existence.

The authors’ primary goal in this study is to review existing data on social movement learning, ask what generalizations can be drawn from the evidence, and point out the major gaps in the knowledge of this area.

The authors have included appendices that analyze the bibliography, list the databases they searched, and outline other documents they consulted during the study.
