Occasional Publication #10: The JEDI Anthology
Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) agendas have become critical within the environments in which education abroad functions. We believe that scholarship informs and enriches those endeavors. The JEDI Anthology draws upon contributions made over the past 12 years.
Collectively, the articles in this volume demonstrate the value of conversations that go beyond everyday concerns to explore diverse perspectives and ideologies. The rationale for this anthology derives from the current political environment. In many countries, a liberal agenda has been undermined by militant parochialism and xenophobia. The timeliness of this anthology was clear.
Going beyond national realities reveals complexity. Default distinctions within American society may not be of global relevance. Thus, we owe it to ourselves and those we teach to challenge dominant narratives.
CEA CAPA’s publications are intended to enrich learning, teaching and research for all of us aspiring to be thoughtful and curious contributors to critical discussions in a complex world. The mission of our series of Occasional Publications is to expand the discourse of education abroad and, in so doing, to challenge conventional orthodoxies and unexplored assumptions. CEA CAPA also partners with the University of Minnesota in the production of a biennial journal on career integration in study abroad.
