Abstract: The paper analyzes the emergent practice of distributed argumentation in an environmentalist campaign. I argue that distributed argumentation was a sense-making process spread across participants as they iteratively, interactively articulated political rationales, with speakers alternating and building on their colleague’s contributions. This practice emerged as both a collaborative practice of intentionally supporting colleagues’ concept development, as well as an oppositional practice that sought to combat more conservative colleagues by affirming peers they identified with and expanding on their argument. Theorizing distributed argumentation contributes to studies of democratic education and argumentation by exploring the interactional learning that happens beyond classrooms to build skill in engaging in democratic debate and politicization.
