Women of Color and the Multicultural Curriculum

Transforming the College Classroom, with a Segment on Puerto Rican Studies
Liza Fiol-Matta

Edited by Liza Fiol-Matta and Mariam K.Chamberlain

This volume provides a guide to curricular change with respect to women of color. Included are case studies of the actual process of faculty transformation, 37 transformed undergraduate syllabi, and an interdisciplinary guide to teaching about Puerto Rican women.

"Here are the fruits of palpable educational change, real models for faculty and students eager for fresh ideas and exciting modes of instruction. We learn as we teach; we learn from each other. This monumental book extends the range of possibilities for learning and teaching in a multicultural world."

—Johnnetta B. Cole, president of Spelman College

"An extraordinarily useful collection of illuminating theoretical essays, reflections on the actual work of curricular transformation, and detailed, exemplary workshop and course syllabi. The philosophical as well as practical achievements within and across all fields are genuinely inspiring. In fact, the profound cultural and political implications of such intellectual/educational work suggest it could have been titled Education for Democracy. Imagine that!"

—Elizabeth Kamarck Minnich, author of Transforming Knowledge
