2 Case Study Research Introduction This chapter outlines the methodological design of the research, the research questions, the aims of the research, and the methods chosen. Using a postpositivist framework of inquiry, this qualitative study uses the theory of phenomenology to inform the research process (Denzin & Lincoln 2000).

Activists learn from one another on the job of activism. Through situating themselves in the practices of activism and through socialization with one another, they develop a habitus of practice and, through time, space, and the opportunity to practice they become experts at what they do (Bourdieu 1977). Apprenticeship learning in activism, particularly in the environment of student unions and social movements, is a significant finding of the research as activists often use the support, assistance, and guidance of mentors (Lave 1996).

Popular education generally has some of the following characteristics: Its curriculum comes out of the concrete experience and material interests of people in communities of resistance and struggle; its pedagogy is collective, focused primarily on a group as distinct from individual learning and development; it attempts where possible, to forge a direct link between education and social action (Crowther, Martin, & Galloway 2005, p. 2). A significant feature of the literature on popular education and radical adult education is its focus on the impact of historical materialism on society, which draws attention to the impact of capitalism on the creation of social disadvantage for certain groups in society (Allman & Wallis 1995; Mayo & Thompson 1995; Foley 1999; Jesson & Newman 2004).
