College and university administrators are increasingly called to confront the deeply entrenched racial inequities in higher education. To do so, corresponding attention must be given to historical and contemporary manifestations of whiteness in higher education and student affairs.This book bridges theoretical and practical considerations regarding the ways whiteness functions to underwrite racially hostile and unwelcoming campus communities for People of Color, all the while upholding the interests and values of white students, faculty, and staff.While higher education scholars and practitioners have long explored the role of race and racism in college and university contexts, rarely have they done so through a lens of Critical Whiteness Studies (CWS). Exploring such topics through the lens of CWS offers new opportunities to both examine white identities, attitudes, and ways of being, and to explicitly name how whiteness is embedded in environments that marginalize and oppress students, faculty, and staff of color. This book is especially concerned with naming the material consequences of whiteness in the lives of People of Color on college and university campuses in the United States.Part one of the book introduces theoretical ideas and concepts administrators, scholars, and activists might use to interrogate how whiteness functions on campus. Part two of the book explores practical considerations for how whiteness functions across campus spaces, including student leadership programs, fraternity and sorority life, faculty tenure and promotion, LGBTQ support services, and so forth.
"Critical Whiteness Praxis in Higher Education: Considerations for the Pursuit of Racial Justice on Campus presents data, analysis, examples, and counternarratives that illustrate how White supremacy is a normal and visible part of higher education. The chapters reflect voices that vary across race, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, other social locations, and campus positions that are underrepresented in critical Whiteness studies and address multiple arenas within higher education. As a Brown social justice educator who has worked with colleges and universities for almost four decades, I am inspired and hopeful that the critical truth-telling within these pages will shake us from safe, palatable approaches to systemic racism and White supremacy on campuses and inform new movements for revolutionary change."

"Critical Whiteness Praxis in Higher Education: Considerations for the Pursuit of Racial Justice on Campus is timely, rich, and an important contribution to the scholarly literature. The editors should be commended for bringing together this cadre of scholars and leaders. Foste and Tevis brilliantly unearth the enormity of whiteness and its corresponding consequences on communities of color in higher education. This text is salient in challenging white supremacy and promoting racial equity in postsecondary educational contexts and beyond."

Zak Foste is an Assistant Professor of Higher Education Administration at the University of Kansas. His research critically explores whiteness in American higher education. This work examines both how whiteness functions to underwrite racially hostile and unwelcoming campus climates for Students of Color and the ways in which white college students understand their relationship to race and whiteness. His most recent work has examined how whiteness structures students' experiences in campus residence halls and community service-learning programs. Zak received his bachelors degree in sociology and political science from Western Illinois University, his masters degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Miami University, and his Ph.D. in Higher Education & Student Affairs from The Ohio State University. Tenisha L. Tevis is an Assistant Professor of Adult and Higher Education at Oregon State University. She earned her Ph.D. in Educational Theory and Policy Studies with a cognate in Higher Education from The Pennsylvania State University, and B.A. and M.A. degrees in Sociology from California State University Sacramento. As a praxis scholar, her research attempts to disrupt dominant ideologies and biased institutional practices, in two substantive and intersecting areas: students' transition to college - exploring how marginalized students continue to be disenfranchised by inequitable practices, and the confluence of leadership and identity in higher education - understanding how leadership practices contribute to the patterns of inequality and exclusion. Her most recent work explores Black women's and white women's leadership, respectively, and includes a systematic review of the college access literature to better inform college advising of Black students.

Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist.
