Locating Social Justice in Higher Education Research

by Jan McArthur

Locating Social Justice in Higher Education Research Synopsis

This book focuses on the relations between social justice and higher education research. Jan McArthur and Paul Ashwin bring together chapters from international researchers that explore these relations in a range of national contexts and consider their implications for policies, pedagogy and our understanding of the roles of graduates in societies. As a whole, the book argues that social justice needs to be more than a topic of higher education research and must also be part of the way that research is undertaken. Social justice must be located in research practices as well as in the issues that are researched.

Locating Social Justice in Higher Education Research Press Reviews

This book is unashamedly passionate in its stance that higher education should foreground social justice as a practice, a focus of research, a methodology, and a pedagogy. The rich reflections on the responsibility universities, academics and students bear to challenge society's unjust status quo comes with some clear directions on how to do so. * Sioux McKenna, Director of Postgraduate Studies, Rhodes University, South Africa * In this cutting-edge and highly readable book - expertly edited and introduced by Jan McArthur and Paul Ashwin - leading female scholars from around the world reflect on how research into higher education can contribute to the advancement of social justice within diverse institutional and social settings. It should be read by all those with an interest in the potential of higher education for creating a fairer and more equal world. * Jon Nixon, Visiting Professor, Middlesex University, United Kingdom, and Honorary Professor, Education University of Hong Kong, China *
