This edited volume sheds light on the lived experiences of underrepresented scholars as they transitioned into their professional roles. Bringing together the stories of doctoral students, practicing scholars, and preeminent scholars in the field of education, the book focuses on the development of voice and scholarship within underrepresented populations in colleges of education and the intersectionality of mentoring. Throughout the book, authors highlight the impact that sources of support and development, such as the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE), had on doctoral degree completion and post degree attainment professional endeavors. Overall, the collection shares and contextualizes experiences and implications of support regarding career advancement related to diversifying higher education faculty and administration.

From Student to Scholar guides graduate students through the "hidden" developmental transition required in writing a dissertation and moving beyond, to become a successful scholar. Identifying common rhetorical challenges across disciplines, author Hjortshoj explains how to accommodate evolving audiences, motivations, standards, writing processes, and timelines. One full chapter is devoted to "writing blocks," and another offers advice to international students who are non-native speakers of English. The text also offers advice for managing relations with advisors and preparing for the diverse careers that PhDs, trained primarily as research specialists, actually enter. On the basis of more than thirty years of consultations with graduate students, this volume is an important addition to graduate thesis seminars and composition courses, as well as an invaluable reference for writing centers, workshops, and learning support centers.

"When is it the best time to publish?""What are drafting and freewriting and why are they important?""Do you need to be very knowledgeable to publish?""Why are some students more successful in publishing than others?""Why am I afraid to write?"These are some questions that you will find answers to in "The Graduate Student As Writer: Encouragement for the Budding Scholar." As graduate students, you may feel the pressure to write and publish. You may compare yourselves to peers who have already published. Or you want to improve your chances of finding an academic position after graduation. However, the process of writing and publishing is not straightforward and seldom discussed amongst students, leaving many to stumble along and figure things out alone.If you are looking for some heart-to-heart talk from one graduate student to another on the mindset, skills, and process that are needed for effective and efficient writing and publishing, this book is for you.This book simplifies the writing process into four stages: Drafting, Feedback, Rewriting and Editing. It maintains that a graduate student is not merely training to be an academic, but is also a writer and artist. It also addresses misconceptions about writing that can hinder your progress, such as thinking that you must have it all together before you can begin.This book is written with the graduate student from a Social Science field in mind, but students of all fields will find its contents applicable.If you feel discouraged that you're not making progress in your writing, this book with chapters in bite-sized readings will encourage you and give you insights into your fears and inspiration to uplift you.Chapters of the book include: "Writing as a Tool", "Begin Writing at Every Stage of your Graduate Studies", "Start Small Wherever You Are", "Fear of Feedback", and "Value and Enjoy the Process, Not Just the Outcome."

Excerpt from book: VII THE STUDENT?MENTAL CHARACTER- ISTICS?BOOKS GiAND old Ohio Wesleyan University gave Charles McCabe the taste for learning and the hunger for knowledge that remained with him through life. We are wont to think of him as the man of impulse and action that he was. His life was an illustration of the Demosthenian definition of eloquence: Action, action, Action. But he was more of a student and scholar than one would imagine his busy life could have permitted him to become. After all, what are these terms: student, scholar, learning, education, but relative terms of indefinite and uncertain value? Beyond a certain narrow circumference, within which there is little disparity of ability between college-bred men, but few men distinguish themselves as great scholars to be recognised as world-authorities in any branch of learning. Every man may be more learned than certain other men, but he will also be less learned than still others. The great majority of scholars are only comparatively scholarly; few are superlatively learned. And that few will not be among the superlatives tomorrow. Was Bishop McCabe a student and a scholar? Yes, less a student and scholar than a few, more a student and scholar than many. It is not every graduate of a University that carries on into life the desire to study and learn that characterised Charles McCabe in those years of early manhood when men of very active duties rarely find the time to devote to books. Bishop McCabe was what is known as a well-read man. We find in his journal by the revelation which he there makes of his sincerest heart feelings that he had tasted only to forever after long to drink deep of the Pierian spring. Six years after he had left College and during the busy, exciting scenes of the Civil War days w...

"I began this book to articulate my sense of disappointment and alienation from the status I had fought so hard to achieve." A remarkable admission from an alumnus of Harvard Law School who has held tenured professorships in the law schools of Yale and Stanford and has taught in the law schools of Harvard and Chicago. In this personal reflection on the status of higher education, Julius Getman probes the tensions between status and meaning, elitism and egalitarianism, that challenge the academy and academics today. He shows how higher education creates a shared intellectual community among people of varied races and classes — while simultaneously dividing people on the basis of education and status. In the course of his explorations, Getman touches on many of the most current issues in higher education today, including the conflict between teaching and research, challenges to academic freedom, the struggle over multiculturalism, and the impact of minority and feminist activism. Getman presents these issues through relevant, often humorous anecdotes, using his own and others' experiences in coping with the constantly changing academic landscape. Written from a liberal perspective, the book offers another side of the story told in such works as Allan Bloom's The Closing of the American Mind and Roger Kimball's Tenured Radicals.

Increasingly, young people live online, with the vast majority of their social and cultural interactions conducted through means other than face-to-face conversation. How does this transition impact the ways in which young migrants understand, negotiate, and perform identity? That's the question taken up by Digital Passages: Migrant Youth 2.0, a ground-breaking analysis of the ways that youth culture online interacts with issues of diaspora, gender, and belonging. Drawing on surveys, in-depth interviews, and ethnography, Koen Leurs builds an interdisciplinary portrait of online youth culture and the spaces it opens up for migrant youth to negotiate power relations and to promote intercultural understanding.
