Equity and How to Get It: Rescuing Graduate Studies
Inanna Publications and Education Incorporated, Jan 1, 1999 - Social Science - 252 pages
"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).
