"This book represents a new vision of curricular change in higher education and presents the theoretical and practical bases for accomplishing it. It bridges the gap between women's studies and ethnic studies, two interdisciplinary bodies of knowledge that have provided significant and important pedagogical innovations in the academy; the dialogue between these two fields has the potential to guide thinking about curricular change for faculty in all fields of study." —Betty Schmitz, University of Maryland, College Park
"Universities are being pressured by ethnic groups and women to revise their curricula to reflect ethnic and gender content. This book provides many insights and resources that can be used to help universities to revise their curricula to more accurately depict the experiences of ethnic groups and women. Many of the chapters in the book provide fresh perspectives, new scholarship, and examples of teaching strategies and materials that are effective in integrating content about women and ethnic groups in the university curriculum." —James A. Banks, University of Washington, Seattle
