Viteri, Maria-Amelia; Tobler, Aaron – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2009
This article illustrates the multiple ways in which anthropology graduate students crossed the boundaries of educational discourses by encouraging themselves, other students, activists and community leaders to speak in dialogical contexts (Giroux 2005: 73). They did this through the organisation of the Interrogating Diversity Conference. The…
