Abstract: In this paper we argue that anger played an important and under-theorized role in shaping the learning ecology of the youth climate activist campaign Fossil Free UofT. Through an interaction analysis of video data collected from the Women’s Caucus meetings over the course of one year, we examined how emotion, and particularly snarky rage, shaped the process of politicization. We draw on recent interventions in the learning sciences which orient to emotionality, especially Vea’s approach to guided emotional participation, to show how emotion shaped the learning trajectories of youth activists. We argue that learning to be angry and express outrage through snarky humour-- was a learning process/target/outcome that enabled participants to become feminists by enabling educational intimacy and fostering politicized trust.
