Abstract

Special Issue of Teaching in Higher Education on ‘diversity and commonality in higher education’. What is diversity in higher education? Should it be celebrated or problematised? Are there limitations in current understandings? Has the language of diversity come to preclude the embracing of different forms of knowledge and ways of knowing? We are inviting contributions which critically address issues of diversity and commonality in higher education. By critical we include work which: attempts to reveal hidden assumptions behind commonly accepted views in order to show why they should be rejected; engages with, explores, and destabilises discourses, values; practices questions taken-for-granted concepts and methods; suggests new forms of enquiry and syntheses; imagines better futures.
