Engaging Our Faculties: New Dialogues on Diversity in Higher Education (In progress)
This volume consists of 10 critical essays written by junior faculty of color from multiple disciplinary backgrounds and 10 responses to those essays written by university Presidents, Provosts, and Deans from across the nation. Each chapter and response points to new frameworks for understanding how universities can better address the institutional practices that encumber and constrain junior faculty of color and that ultimately undermine their effectiveness in pursuing transformative, social justice-oriented work.

Interests

  • Comparative Ethnic Studies
  • Lesbian and Gay/Queer Studies
  • U.S. Latina and Latino literature and culture
