Abstract:

"This special collection of papers offers a variety of critiques of the current state of equity in post-secondary educational institutions, specifically at the graduate level, and challenges the patriarchal Eurocentrism of the traditional academic canon which has bee a cornerstone of equity theory. This volume is edited by Kay Armatage and contributors to the volume are: William Haver, Juanita Westmoreland-Traoré, Patricia Monture Angus, Alison Young, Erica Meiners and Jodi Jensen, Kofi Asare, Irina Zherebkina, Hildegard Maria Nickel, Warren Crichlow, Roberta Lamb, Jamie-Lynn Magnusson, Terry Provost, Kathleen Rockhill and George Dei.

"This important collection of essays rethinks complacent notions of equity, graduate studies, and even the university's rescue fantasies. Readers are offered a contest of views, all of which take seriously the idea that education as institution, as knowledge, as pedagogy, as history, as social policy, as Eros, and as identity is lived as an argument. The arguments proffered encompass not just the misunderstandings between individuals, cultures, and differing conceptualizatons of what constitute 'the good univeristy.' The authors present argument itself as the grounds for thinking, learning, sociality, and resistance. Two kinds of questions structure this volume: what difference can social difference make? and, what social differences can equity make? Moving well beyond the 'special topics' approach to equity, this collection analyzes the artifacts of equity, posing equity and inequity as a problem of thought, of knowledge, and of ethicality. In doing so, we are offered provocative new conceptualizations of the working of equity in education."~Deborah P. Britzman, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, York University, Toronto (pub. website).
