Abstract

While learning sciences researchers have explored forms of solidarity underpinning learning and relations across powered forms of social difference, they have largely not integrated insights from social movements literature. Building with lines of practice theory (Azevedo, 2011, 2013), we analyze ethnographic interviews with animal rights activists to understand how power relations and the felt obligations of privilege shape how individual lines of practice develop within the collective pursuit of justice. We find that individual learners feel the implications of their place in the “weave,” as one thread among many, shaping their practice in ways that are neither internal nor external, but fundamentally relational.
