  • Burn It Down: The Incommensurability of the University and Decolonization

    • Authors: Edwin Mayorga et al.
      Abstract: As students and a professor in, but not of, an American liberal arts college, we ask whether our current institutions of higher education are compatible with a project of decolonization. Grounded in our own testimonios and drawing on a genealogy of Western knowledge, we argue that U.S. higher education authorizes and perpetrates settler colonial violence. Furthermore, based on our experiences surviving this violence, we conclude that the Universitas adapts to inhibit and neutralize institutional reform that might challenge its coloniality. As such, we find that higher education is not only incompatible, but irredeemably incommensurable with decolonization. In being incommensurable, we ask ourselves whether we should transform higher education or burn it down and start anew' We argue that we do need to burn it down, and we look to how individuals within the institution already work towards the development of a new social structure, one that will outlast and supplant higher education. We identify three constructive and transformative techniques currently used for this purpose: empowerment, survival, and conversion. These techniques are a combination of stances towards, relationships to, and practices within, the institution that build collective futurities no longer dependent upon higher education.

  • Playing in the Dark with My Endarken[ing] Feminist Epistemology

    • Authors: shelby eden dawkins-law evans-el
      Abstract: Whether referred to as fieldnotes, life notes, or art, playing in the dark with representations of Black femme life is one of my ways of resisting structures of violence in higher education (Evans-Winters, 2019). These poems are a small collection from a series that is intended to be used as qualitative data for anEndarkened Feminist Epistemology(EFE) project (Dillard, 2006). This exercise represents my process of becoming—endarkening—by steeping myself in Black feminism(s) including but not limited to thought, praxis, and qualitative inquiry. The larger body of work includes science fiction, poetry, paintings and mixed media. Each piece is a sampled in preparation for an autobiographical dissertation that will be heavily artistic in its final form (Bell-Scott, 1995). In addition to this standalone work, I will include reflections upon the process of publishing these poems as data for the larger endeavor in from which I will curate an anthology of life notes/fieldnotes/art nurtured in methods demonstrated by my elders, Toni Cade Bambara (1970), Patricia Bell-Scott (1995), Nana Mansa II (also known as Cynthia B. Dillard) (2006), and Venus E. Evans-Winters (2019). This exercise has higher education policy and practice implications for rethinking how graduate students in the social sciences are expected to demonstrate their learning to academe’s petit-bourgeoisie(The Damned, 1973). In particular, it considers the yet-to-be-well, whose psychological, social, and spiritual murder often disempowers their ability to imagine otherwisetheir education in the wake(Cade Bambara, 1980; Sharpe, 2016).

  • Maybe They Are Just Kinesthetic Learners' Student Walkouts and the
           Purposes of Education

    • Authors: Michael Dieter et al.
      Abstract: Students have historically engaged in demonstrations, including walkouts, of schools for causes they are passionate about including the protest of federal immigration policy, teacher quality, civil rights, and most recently school violence. In this instances, students have decided that leaving the school, rather than remaining in it is more likely to bring about the social changes they desire. What does this say about how students value education as it has been presented in the United States' These acts of protest reflect the idea that perhaps students don’t see schools, as currently constructed, as part of the solution to societal ills. If that were the case, why would they walk out' This paper will consider local and federal guidance in anticipation of the walkouts which drew more than one million participants following the events at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and the larger question, of do schools have a role to play in reducing violence in society'

  • Radical Rejections of Violence: Resisting Anti-Muslim Racism

    • Authors: Umaymah Mohammad et al.
      Abstract: This paper argues that by expanding and critiquing the definition of violence with relation to Islamophobia, implicit manifestations of Islamophobia, anti-Muslim Racism, and structural violence can be exposed. Through the work of the Muslim Youth Collective, we frame anti-Muslim racism as structural violence, and provide considerations for how Muslim communities may actualize resistance in response.

  • Black Lives Matter as Resistance to Systemic Anti-Black Violence

    • Authors: Dominique Thomas
      Abstract: Black Lives Matter has emerged within the last five years as a significant movement for social change. Serving as an ideological and political intervention, Black Lives Matter organizes to protect and advocate for Black lives and Black communities. This article will outline Black Lives Matter as a movement and how it is a form of resistance as against systemic anti-Black violence. Centuries of Black resistance against epistemic, structural/policy, and physical violence is the historical context of Black Lives Matter. Two prominent aspects of the movement intersectionality and decentralized leadership. The implications for resistance are that BLM is a new form of activism and social movement and there is a need for properly documenting resistance in the moment to inform future movements and to prevent future epistemic violence.

  • Rallying Over Balloting: The Origins of Millennial Activism

    • Authors: Nolan Higdon
      Abstract: Activism by U.S. millennials, such as the March for Our Lives, Occupy, and Black Lives Matter, has reversed a national decline in civic engagement. Much of the scholarship has focused on how, not why, millennials participate in activism. This qualitative study of 121 purposely sampled millennial participants seeks to identify the origins of millennial activism. This study operates from a generational lens. Interviews of each participant from 2015-2017 went through two cycles of coding to reveal five progenitors of millennial activism: Family and Friends, Institutions and Organizations, Encounters with Activism, Media and Popular Culture, and Hate and Harm. The study recommends that educators synthesize the progenitors of millennial activism into effective civic engagement pedagogy.

  • "Forget About Justice:" Survivance and Resistance in Teacher
           Education

    • Authors: Ramon Vasquez
      Abstract: This Testimonio examines how systemic epistemic violence operates in teacher education. In this paper, systemic epistemic violence refers to the silencing of demands for justice voiced by faculty of color as well as the devaluing of counter-knowledges that draw on different epistemologies. This Testimonio highlights the way the “Othering” of faculty from racialized groups produces and protects systemic epistemic violence. “Othering” in this case does not simply refer to individual racial discrimination or oppression rooted in White fragility. Instead, it refers to the intrinsic indignities faculty of color, in this case a Chicano assistant professor, must endure when they resist majoritarian narratives of progress.

  • Writing Ourselves Into Existence: Healing Through Collaborative Curriculum
           Development

    • Authors: Bianca Ivette Laureano et al.
      Abstract: Here we offer an open exchange / evaluation of our experience as facilitator and editor (Bianca) and writer and collaborator (Sara) during the inaugural Women of Color Sexual Health Network Curriculum Lab which took place November 2017 in New Orleans, LA. In two months, 7 women and femmes of color who are sexuality educators wrote a robust curriculum for our communities that centers pleasure, social emotional learning competencies as early Freedom Schools implemented, sex and pleasure positive, using an intersectional framework and praxis, disability justice framework, inclusive of LGBTQ communities, and does not assume HIV negative status. This is one of the first collaborative curricula to fill in the gaps of the insufficient evidenced-based federally funded curricula. We offer a conversation that highlights how collaborative curricula for sexuality education classes supporting participants of color is a form of healing and community restitution for educators and facilitators.

  • Project Resilience: A community-based Resilience Initiative to engage
           rural adolescents towards healthy functioning

    • Authors: Anthony J. Hill et al.
      Abstract: Project Resilience: A community-based Resilience Initiative to engage rural adolescents towards healthy functioningProject Resilience, a community-based resilience initiative was developed to address public concern. In the first part of the year of 2012 in a rural Mid-Atlantic state, eight adolescents and young adults died by suicide. Concerned public officials asked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assist with the epidemiologic investigation of these deaths. Mental health problems were found to be a significant contributing factor to the fatal suicide attempts. The scope of this paper will explore the potential influence of rural stress, trauma and violence among adolescents and the lack of access to care and mental health services as being a relevant factor. Project Resilience will be introduced in exploring how this community resilience model can help prepare youth and young adults to utilize inner strengths and mobilize family, community, and cultural resources when faced with adversity. Grounded in an ecological perspective, Project Resilience is a strengths-based initiative which incorporates traditional counseling and psychotherapy techniques. Project Resilience also can minimize barriers associated with seeking mental health services in rural communities, including stigma and limited access to mental health services. Relevant implications and recommendations will be offered on how Project Resilience can be one effective intervention tool in working with this population.

  • Accessibility and Health: An International Analysis of Government
           Expenditure, Socioeconomic Development and Infant Mortality

    • Authors: Isaac Zvi Christiansen et al.
      Abstract: This research examines the relationship between government’s share of health expenditures and infant mortality (IMR). Public healthcare funding is a critical component of ensuring access to care for the poor. Financial barriers may lead to postponement of care, thereby exacerbating health outcomes. We find a moderate association between the government’s share of health expenditures and IMR and strong support for a multifaceted approach to accessibility that includes doctor density, vaccination coverage, improved water and sanitation, and female literacy in reducing IMR. Findings suggest that the effect of government’s share of health spending on IMR is stronger in poorer nations.

  • Cultural Competency Training: How Do We Measure Outcomes'

    • Authors: Timothy Lee et al.
      Abstract: BackgroundThe term “cultural competency” in healthcare is meant to convey an understanding of cultural and linguistic differences that exist within and between distinct social groups and a sensitivity to these differences that may allow for improved health care outcomes to occur. The medical literature has validated the importance of cultural competency training to medical education and its possible influence on patient health status and outcomes. Many pre-licensure cultural competency training programs have emerged due to the perceived benefits for healthcare delivery and outcomes. However, few studies have evaluated the clinical impact and success of these training programs. In this brief and limited review, we examine 10 pre-licensure cultural competency training programs for measures of outcomes and analyze the programs with respect to six domains of cultural competency identified by our literature review.MethodsFifteen programs were identified through web-based search engines and the medical literature. A comparison was then performed among 10 programs and analyzed based on six domains that the literature review found to be important.ResultsThis brief review revealed that a majority of pre-licensure cultural competency training programs are still heavily focused on implementing non-patient centered self-assessments to evaluate effectiveness.DiscussionIf training programs constrain the assessment tools to only non-patient centered approaches, then it becomes more difficult to quantify the medical impact of cultural competency on patient health. The authors propose a unified approach to measure the efficacy of cultural competency programs. They identify four important characteristic outcomes as:1. Non-patient centered: Fact-based knowing2. Non-patient centered: Self-Assessments3. Patient-centered assessments4. Healthcare resource utilizationConclusionThough this approach has yet to be tested, the authors believe that incorporating these four assessments will better enable healthcare professionals to design a new form of cultural competency training that fosters deeper clinical reasoning for providers and improves patient outcomes.
