Bernd Reiter, Bridging Scholarship and Activism

By reflecting on his own trajectory from being a social justice activist and social worker turned scholar and researcher, Reiter describes how moving through various spaces around the globe exposed him to further explore intellectually the contingencies between the freedoms associated with globalism and the desires to find social connection. In these journeys Reiter, now Professor of Political Science at the University of South Florida, redefines what constitutes activism without constraints that tend to define both the traditional ivy-tower and the neoliberal university.
