New Publication by Dr. Teresa Fowler

Posted on: Feb 11, 2021

Dr. Teresa Fowler, Assistant Professor of Education at CUE, is pleased to announce the publication of Duoethnographic Encounters: Opening Spaces for Difficult Dialogues in Times of Uncertainty.

Edited by Dr. Fowler and Dr. Willow Samara Allen, Adjunct Faculty Member in Educational Leadership Studies at the University of Victoria, Duoethnographic Encounters builds upon the methodology developed by Drs. Richard D. Sawyer and Joe Norris, whose foreword sets the tone for this excellent resource in qualitative research. The book has been designed for courses in Diversity, Current Issues, Leadership, Multicultural Education, Research Methodology, Racial and Ethnic Studies, Social Justice and Sociology.

The back cover of the book reads, “We live in a period of uncertainty characterized by climate change, the rise of populism, mass migration across borders, and severe economic, political and social inequities. To understand how these realities impact ourselves and each other, and what we can do about them, this book creates a third space for scholars, activists and practitioners across disciplines and sectors to engage in dialogues across differences using duoethnography. Through dialogical storytelling, each chapter shares experiences as a site of critical inquiry into the various ‘isms’ that frame inequities (racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, Whiteness, ableism, religion oppression and more). This book is an opening and an invitation to engage in dialogue with/among each other as a means to mobilize in order to dismantle the systems and processes of power and privilege that sustain uncertainty.”
