Stories from the Front of the Room

Genre: Education

Research demonstrates that faculty of color in historically white institutions experience higher levels of discrimination, cultural taxation, and emotional labor than their white colleagues. Despite efforts to recruit minority faculty, all of these factors undermine their scholarship, pedagogy, social experiences, promotion and retention. This edited volume builds upon the existing research on faculty of color, however, it also departs from the existing literature and unravels the socio-emotional experiences of being in front of the classroom, in labs, and in the Ivory Tower for faculty who are in multiple racialized social locations. In an effort to circulate the experiences of faculty of color more widely to academic and non-academic audiences, this edited volume replaces conventional scholarly technical papers with unconventionally accessible letters. Stories from the Front of the Room focuses on the boundaries which faculty of color encounter in everyday experiences on campus and presents a more complete picture of life in the academy - one that documents how faculty of color are tested, but also how they can not only overcome, but thrive in their respective educational institutions.

»Meisterhaft. DER SYMPATHISANT ist zum Klassiker bestimmt.« T.C. Boyle Im April 1975 wird eine Gruppe südvietnamesischer Offiziere unter dramatischen Bedingungen aus Saigon in die USA geflogen. Darunter ein als Adjutant getarnter kommunistischer Spion. In Los Angeles soll er weiterhin ein Auge auf die politischen Gegner haben, ringt jedoch immer mehr mit seinem Doppelleben, den Absurditäten des Spionagewesens, der Konsumgesellschaft und seiner eigenen Identität: “Ich bin ein Spion, ein Schläfer, ein Maulwurf, ein Mann mit zwei Gesichtern. Da ist es vielleicht kein Wunder, dass ich auch ein Mann mit zwei Seelen bin.“ Ein literarischer Polit-Thriller über den Vietnamkrieg und seine Folgen, eine meisterhafte Aufarbeitung über die Missverständnisse zwischen Kapitalismus und Kommunismus, ein schillerndes Werk über das Scheitern von Idealen, ein bravouröser Roman über die universelle Erfahrung von Verlust, Flucht und Vertreibung.
