Track workshop. The performative imperatives of being and becoming a business school academic in contemporary neoliberalcircumstances are fraught with critiques and contestations, especially when set against intense and urgent calls to address global scale,societal and climacticcrises. Within this context, there isa plurality of ways in which academicsattempt to challenge, resist, and de-construct in order to re-construct possibilities for futures which embody sustainable sensitivities and action. However, the literature has not yet documented this plurality, so this workshop aims to collate and map the alternative praxes of academicactivism, that is, the different perspectives and possibilities of how theory-practice is imbricated and expressed in practice. This participatoryworkshop invitesand welcomesa range of scholarsto experiment and explore the praxes of academic activismin a supportive environment, and consider future individual and collaborative agendas and acts.
