Summary
"The purpose of this book is to provide a rationale, theoretical foundations, and general guidelines for implementing multicultural feminist theories and pedagogies in psychology and related disciplines. The major goals are to summarize varied theoretical perspectives on social justice education, suggest general guidelines for integrating theories of pedagogy, and discuss the challenges and rewards of teaching from multicultural and feminist frameworks. The editors use the phrase social justice in the title of this book to highlight the importance of infusing scholarship and practice relevant to diversity in both the process and the content of education. More specifically, social justice in education includes (a) centralizing and affirming the perspectives of those whose experiences have been marginalized or ignored, (b) transforming the manner in which education occurs such that power differences are minimized and the empowerment of learners and educators is optimized, (c) working toward the full and equal participation of all learners, and (d) rethinking the institutional structures in which learning occurs. The book also summarizes how various frameworks construe issues of diversity, identifies the contributions of each, and discusses common as well as divergent implications and strategies. The first objective, then, is to provide readers with tools for creating multicultural feminist pedagogies. A second goal is to help psychologists and educators integrate theory and practice. A third goal of this book is to bring the literature of pedagogy, particularly pedagogy about diversity, to psychology. Overall, the volume is divided into two sections that address both theoretical and application aspects of multicultural and feminist pedagogies"--Preface.
