dc.description.abstractBringing situated learning theory to social movement theory, this paper examines the ways young adults engaged in social justice activities become activists. As novices within United Students for Fair Trade, students reported not identifying with activism, yet through their immersion in USFT's community of practice and their increasing participation in the dominant practices of the community, particularly the facilitation techniques, norms, and rituals, they came to identify and be identified as activists. This study highlights the value of situated learning and community of practice theory for social movements while demonstrating legitimate peripheral participation.en_US
