This perspective that sees intellectual work as occurring primarily within academic settings, populated by pampered teachers and scholars, and political or activist work as situated in the so-called real world, filled with activists and members of the general public, severs ideas from power relations. This basic binary worldview obscures the complexities of engaging in intellectual activism in both social locations as well as the connections between them. Seeing only two choices limits our choices. Rather, because ideas and politics are everywhere, the potential for intellectual activism is also possible everywhere.

Patricia Hill Collins in On Intellectual Activism
