Whose University Is It, Anyway?
Power and Privilege on Gendered Terrain
Whose University Is It, Anyway? paints a dynamic portrait of what goes on behind the scenes at today’s Canadian universities. In compelling accounts, the contributors discuss how equity and gender shape their experiences as they explore the realities they face as professors, teaching assistants, students, contingent faculty, tenured faculty and administrative staff. This is a timely and important contribution.
"Whose University Is It, Anyway? brings together essays that not only inform but also inspire. They describe a range of ways in which diversity is now experienced and interpreted in Canadian higher education, and discuss how the social justice goals are increasingly undermined by the corporatization of universities. Yet this analysis is not unduly pessimistic, but points to the political spaces that can still be found for resistance and reform."— Fazal Rizvi, Professor of Educational Policy Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
