Is there a word or phrase for academic fields that are aligned with a political movement or position? For example:
- Feminist studies is aligned with feminism. African American studies is closely aligned with the civil rights movement. Sociology, on the other hand, is not in general aligned with a specific political movement, and so wouldn't be under this word.
- Political science generally isn't aligned with a specific political position, and so wouldn't be covered under this word. Libertarian studies, on the other hand, would be covered by this word, being aligned with libertarianism. Same goes for Marxism.
An example sentence would be "Academics from x fields recently had a conference discussing the complex interplay of their various political movements."
Note that it should mean that they are aligned with a particular movement, not simply studying it (although they would probably do both). The study of history of Nazism probably wouldn't be this unless it also promoted Nazism.
Also, what would academics from those fields be called? (Also, is there a word for fields not aligned with a political movement or position?)
Note: I mean that a certain field is fundamentally aligned with a given political alignment, not specific individuals or outside forces.
