Files

Description

Feminist Community Engagement argues that feminism, with its emphasis on consciousness-raising, interrogating power structures, and activism, is strategically necessary for the community engagement (CE) movement in higher education. Following an editorial overview of perspectives on feminism and community engagement, the contributors to this volume illuminate successes and challenges of feminist community engagement, and many offer practical applications for our CE work. Feminist Community Engagement advances how feminism can serve as a theoretical and practical strategy for combining activist engagement with democratic concerns for social justice and equality. Iverson, James, and their contributors draw explicitly on a feminist lens to illuminate successes and challenges of feminist community engagement, and offer practical applications.
