Abstract
This study asks how members of the Edmonton Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) are learning to challenge capitalist hegemony. A critical ethnographic method is used to explore the question. A history of education in the IWW and related movements provides a foreground to findings and analysis in this contemporary study. A rich practise of workers’ education is found in the Edmonton and wider IWW which—aided by actions of solidarity— influences working-class struggles beyond membership. A combination of organic and traditional intellectuals engage in a revolutionary praxis of anarcho-syndicalism and related theories reinterpreted through struggles that challenge capitalist hegemony pre-figuratively in the workplace and on the picket lines of Edmonton.
