About this book

This volume explores the impact of social identity on teaching and learning. The contributors argue, from the perspective of diverse disciplinary and educational contexts, that mobilizing identities in the classroom is a necessary part of progressive educators' efforts to transform knowledge-making and to create a more just and democratic society.

Reviews

"Debates in the sphere of higher education about multicultural education, diversity, and affirmative action have reached a fevered pitch . . .One could hardly imagine, then, a more opportune moment to pursue research on the importance of identity in education. This collection by Sánchez-Casal and Macdonaldis timely, broad in its design, and novel in its approach." - Tobin Siebers, V. L. Parrington Collegiate Professor, English Language and Literature,UniversityofMichigan

"Identity in Education is a substantive, provocative contribution to the conversation of how to best democratize higher education and successfully engage multiple social and cultural identities on campus. Drawing from multiple disciplines and social locations, the essays in this book together represent the power of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of higher education and its role in society." - The Journal of Higher Education
