Reviews

"This innovative collection offers lessons from feminist praxis to demonstrate the collective power of critical community engagement for social justice. Challenging conservative approaches to service learning, the authors share their experiences in promoting social change through activist citizenship, feminist philanthropy, and collaborative action research. The editors deftly weave together a visionary text that should be read by feminist activists and scholars alike." - Nancy A. Naples, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, University of Connecticut, USA

"Feminist Community Engagement raises significant issues that will cause educators to reflect on and to rethink the teaching, research, and service functions of higher education. Particularly valuable is the constant movement between the description of individual cases and the connection of those cases to larger social structures, with implications not only for the design of community engagement experiences, but also for approaches to teaching and researching critical questions affecting both students and society in the twenty-first century." - Martha C. Merrill, Associate Professor of Higher Education and Coordinator, International Education Certificate, Kent State University, USA
