Series: Education and Struggle, Volume 22


This second edition of Asian/American Scholars of Education: 21st Century Pedagogies, Perspectives, and Experiences shares an updated number of Asian/American luminaries in the field of education. This updated collection of essays and national data analyses acknowledges the struggle that Asian/American Education scholars have faced when it comes to being regarded as legitimate scholars deserving of endowed or distinguished status in the field of education. The chapter contributors in this second edition include postdoctoral mentees, former students, and colleagues of the newly added Asian/American endowed and distinguished professors featured in the book: Hua-Hua Chang, Nicholas Hartlep, Guofang Li, Justin Perry, and Kui Xie. Asian/American Scholars of Education makes an important impact by continuing to ask: Why are there so few Asian/American endowed and distinguished faculty members in education?
