Activism that involves action to challenge subordination and social and material inequality tends to address the intersection of identities and distribution of rewards, opportunities and burdens: for example, “justice and the politics of difference” (Young 1990); “justice interruptus” (Fraser 1997); resisting the colonisation of Indigenous lands and knowledge (Gray, Coates and Yellow Bird 2008); and “resistance” to the “regulation of people of color” in the United States (Schiele 2011). This chapter aims to investigate recognition and redistribution as situated “concrete social and political practices” (Young 1990, 5). In particular, it focuses on the practical construction of ‘activism’ as a response to (mis)recognition that has the potential to affect (maldistribution of rewards (Fraser 2000) in an academic context.
