Disability and the University

A Disabled Students’ Manifesto

Edited by Christopher McMaster and Benjamin Whitburn

Disability and the University: A Disabled Students’ Manifesto is a guide to what students with disabilities need to know about attending university, as well as to the essentials universities should provide for these students. Each chapter presents a benchmark for students to follow as they travel through the institution, and lays clear what they should expect. Written by former students with disabilities who have traversed the terrain and experienced higher education, this book is not about disabled students, but instead is a manifesto, a call for change, a call to action. It is a guide book, blueprint, and tool for both students and universities.

Disability and the University is divided into four parts, each examining crucial aspects of higher education, including the culture of the academy, movement beyond the limits of compliance, access to and in the institution, and disability rights. Each chapter is a statement of what every institution of higher education should provide for disabled students.

While every country has its own practice and laws based on its own experience, arbitrary national boundaries should no longer be a reason for practices that do not meet student needs. Disability and the University speaks across borders, and leaves no doubt about what needs to be done to develop more inclusive teaching and learning spaces.

Pour Barthes, « La littérature, c’est ce qui s’enseigne, un point c’est tout » : le lien entre l’école et la fabrication du littéraire semble indissociable. C’est pour tenter de comprendre comment la littérature s’est constituée comme objet scolaire que le réseau Helice (Histoire de l’Enseignement de la Littérature, Comparaison Européenne), composé d’une vingtaine de chercheurs de pays européens ou du Québec, a été créé en 2010.

Les travaux du groupe s’organisent à partir de plusieurs approches (didactique, historique et comparatiste) dont l’intérêt est de dé-naturaliser la relation qui existe entre la littérature et l’école et d’interroger l’enseignement d’une discipline qui semble souvent aller de soi.

Après la fable et la lettre, le groupe Helice s’attache maintenant à étudier l’extrait appréhendé comme un objet susceptible de rendre compte des processus de scolarisation de la littérature.

Dans cet ouvrage, les chercheurs d’Helice ont étudié la façon dont l’œuvre littéraire est scolarisée sous la forme particulière de l’extrait, qui en retour fabrique la littérature de l’école. Le premier chapitre étudie l’émergence de l’extrait au fil du temps et son usage, indissociable de sa relation avec l’œuvre dont il provient. Le deuxième chapitre envisage de manière comparatiste les usages de l’extrait dans la formation du lecteur et du scripteur, dans différents pays et segments scolaires, à différents moments, voire dans différents contextes disciplinaires. Le troisième chapitre analyse comment les œuvres de plusieurs grands auteurs patrimoniaux sont lues à l’école.

La irrupción de lo digital en el mundo de las humanidades ha puesto en evidencia la necesidad de un replanteamiento bastante radical de nuestra relación con el objeto de estudio; una variación que afecta a la totalidad del proceso que va de la creación a la recepción: escritura, transmisión, análisis, recepción, preservación y aplicación a la enseñanza.

De todos estos aspectos se ocupan las páginas de este volumen, atentas a los cambios que lo digital ha venido a imponer sobre la categoría de «autor literario» y sobre la escritura misma; al lector tan distinto al tradicional que emerge de los transmedia; a la difusión masiva de la literatura; a las novedades derivadas de la incorporación al proceso de análisis de métodos cuantitativos o las que emanan de la edición digital; y, finalmente, a la renovación didáctica que impone la adecuación del aula a lo digital.

Education and «Pädagogik»

Philosophical and Historical Reflections (Central, Southern and South-Eastern Europe)

Series:

Edited by Blanka Kudláčová and Andrej Rajský

The book approaches education and the science of education (Ger. Pädagogik) from two perspectives: philosophical and historical. The philosophical perspectives (the fi rst part of the book) explore key philosophical influences underlying the notion of Pädagogik. Questions are raised about the status of philosophy of education, and of Pädagogik as a fi eld of study. The nature and scope of their contributions in academic workplaces are critically reviewed. Concerning the historical perspectives (the second part of the book), these explore key historical moments in the development of Pädagogik as a scientific and academic discipline in individual countries of Central, Southern and South-Eastern Europe, based on the original German tradition.

Intersectionality of Critical Animal Studies: A Historical Collection represents the very best that the internationally scholarly Journal for Critical Animal Studies (JCAS) has published in terms of articles that are written by public critical scholar-activists-organizers for public critical scholar-activists-organizers. This move toward publishing pieces about engaging social change, rather than high-theoretical detached analysis of nonhuman animals in society, is to regain focus for liberation at all costs. The essays in this collection focus on intersectionality scholarship within the realm of Critical Animal Studies, and discuss issues related to race, gender, disability, class, and queerness. Not only are these articles historically significant within the field of Critical Animal Studies, but they are integral to the overall social justice movement. Intersectionality of Critical Animal Studies: A Historical Collection should be read by anyone interested in the Critical Animal Studies field, as we consider them to be classic writings that should be respected as foundational texts. There are many interesting and innovative texts, but these are historical, not only because they were published in JCAS, but because they were among the first to publish on a particular intersectional issue.

Now more than ever, students need support. To meet their needs, educators should encourage their students to break from the mainstream by inspecting their experiences, and therefore expressing their own values. This endeavor will lead students to make choices that are best for themselves and others. It is important to support students in both relating and connecting to society, and to have hope and joy for meeting the day full on.

Educators need to give their students the opportunity to reveal their life histories, experiences, perspectives, and expectations in ways that are themed with the educators' class curriculums. Doing so will naturally build inter-subjectivity. Increased inter-subjectivity leads to meaningful relationships and higher achievement. In turn, this will lead to stronger social relatedness and connectedness.

The purpose of Building, Maintaining, and Repairing Classroom Relationships is simple: to quickly build classroom relationships in a metaphorical, colorful, and creative way. This can be accomplished by theming curriculum with phenomenology, experience, and values clarification (PEVC) strategies. This book is set up in a concrete, sequential, and linear fashion, and is designed to meet the needs of a variety of educators and leaders. It is arranged to be browsed for quick reference for teachers who are busy and need relationship building strategies, fast.
