Summary Read First Chapter image missing

2016 NYASA Book Award, presented by the New York African Studies Association

An interdisciplinary anthology exploring issues related to diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice.


When students are introduced to the study of diversity and social justice, it is usually from sociological and psychological perspectives. The scholars and activists featured in this anthology reject this approach as too limiting, insisting that we adopt a view that is both transdisciplinary and multiperspectival. Their essays focus on the components of diversity, social justice, and inclusive excellence, not just within the United States but in other parts of the world. They examine diversity in the contexts of culture, race, class, gender, learned ability and dis/ability, religion, sexual orientation, and citizenship, and explore how these concepts and identities interrelate. The result is a book that will provide readers with a better theoretical understanding of diversity studies and will enable them to see and think critically about oppression and how systems of oppression may be challenged.

At the State University of New York College at Cortland, Seth N. Asumah is SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor and Professor of Political Science, and Mechthild Nagel is Professor of Philosophy. Together they have coedited Prisons and Punishment: Reconsidering Global Penality.
