Über dieses Buch

This collection weaves together the personal narratives of a group of diverse scholars in academia in order to reflect on the ways that grief and hope matter for those situated within higher education. Each chapter explores a unique aspect of grief and loss, from experiencing a personal tragedy such as the loss of a loved one, to national and international grief such as campus shootings and refugee camp experiences, to experiencing racism and microaggressions as a woman of color in academia, to the implications of religious differences severing personal ties as an individual navigates research and academic studies. Unlike most resources examining grief, this collection pushes beyond notions of sorrow as solely individual, and instead situates moments of loss and hurt as ones that matter politically, academically, professionally, and personally. The editors and their authors offer pathways forward to academics, researchers, teachers, pedagogues, and thinkers who grapple with grief in a variety of forms, transforming this book into a critical resource of hope to those in the field of education (and others) who may feel the effects of an otherwise solitary journey of grief, to create an awareness of solidarity and support that some may not realize exists within academic circles.

Stimmen zum Buch

“A mesmeric, compassionate, and authentic portrayal across perspectives of how the academy remains unprepared to fully, unconditionally, and flexibly validate and support faculty, staff, and students through their vulnerability and depths of grief while simultaneously threading ways to navigate, cultivate, and maintain hope through their professional identities. These raw, illustrative chapters offer the academy a navigational springboard for voice and action upon which to improve.”
Kristine Jolivette, Paul W. Bryant and Mary Harmon Bryant Endowed Professor, University of Alabama, USA

 “Stephanie Shelton and Nicole Sieben crafted this book from their own grief, feeling the way the tendrils of loss and mourning were reaching into every corner and cranny of their teaching and research, and knowing they were far from alone in their experience. The chapters they have assembled are a meditation on how life and pedagogy, inquiry and longing, and despair and hope are entwined in ways that are also inseparable from the urgent need to move toward centering the humanity of students and faculty in higher education.”
Elizabeth Dutro, Professor of Literacy Studies, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA, and author of The Vulnerable Heart of Literacy: Centering Trauma as Powerful Pedagogy (2019)
