Here are several narratives by Latino Professors in American universities addressing issues of racism, marginalization, and self-valuation as the narrators tell their stories of survival and success. Latino professors in American universities tell their own stories of survival within academia. Each story is a perspective, a slice of academic life. Collectively, the multiple perspectives in this volume provide a totality that is penetrating and disturbing but essential if we are to genuinely diversify our present and future professoriate. The accounts capture and challenge the academic cultural

This book is about women’s exploration of the relations between their private and public selves-it examines the voices with which women speak to their students, their colleagues, and themselves. The major audience is women interested in women’s identity and identity construction as well as writing. Plain and Ordinary Things revisions the space of student writing in classrooms from a number of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives: feminist, literary, anthropological, and phenomenological. It actualizes the relationships among reading and writing, the songs of pre-literate peopl

Gadamer on Celan makes all of Hans-Georg Gadamer’s published writings on Paul Celan’s poetry available in English for the first time. Gadamer’s commentaries on Celan’s work are explicitly meant for a general audience, and they are further testimony to Celan’s growing importance in world literature since the Second World War. Celan’s poetry has attracted the attention of many well-known figures, including Maurice Blanchot, Jacques Derrida, Edmond Jabe’s, Otto Poggeler, and George Steiner. As Steiner has said, "It will take a long time for our sensibilit

Trivers, E. O. Wilson, R. Dawkins, and others. The contemporary section discusses ethics within the framework of evolutionary theory as enriched by the works of biologists such as those mentioned above. The issue of whether ethical practice and ethical theory can be grounded in the theory of evo
