abstract
In broad intelligentsia, approaches for defining Civil Intellectuals seem to be a never-ending philosophical battle even for the intellectuals themselves. Due to the lack of capable interpretation with the help of traditional ways, definitions for Civil Intellectuals are not able to meet their wide range of hybrid activities in various faces in social activism. Rather seeing them in the continuous political and philosophical struggle, this article attempts to analyze them in two other notions of Resistance and Collective Social Movement. It argues that the notion of Civil Intellectual has the potential to reflect through an understanding of Resistance and Collective Social Movement to challenge various oppressive power constructions in the society. It aims to investigate on another two sub-arguments: a) Civil Intellectuals’ function as a constant pressure group entities and b) The concept of Resistance is predominantly more countering in nature than the notion of Collective Social Movement. In that continuation, this article presents tripartite connectivity coining a case of Collective Social Movement in the context of Bangladesh. Additionally, it tries to offer an extended model of Civil intellectual’s social placement mode in society. This study accessed secondary data resources of various scholarly medium and sources where the three notions are discussed in a complimentary way. Besides, with the use of empirical observation, participation, and first-hand field data; the study detects Civil Intellectuals with comprehensive activism in the issues of social protests. The findings suggest that Resistance itself functions through a ‘contradicting approach’ to the power structure.
