College Students' Experiences of Power and Marginality: Sharing Spaces and Negotiating Differences by Elizabeth M. Lee and Chaise LaDousa

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


This book, edited by Elizabeth M. Lee and Chaise LaDousa, is a collection of empirical studies on the Higher Education experiences of underrepresented students on American campuses. It is a particularly relevant read in a global context of increasing access and participation to Higher Education, as traditionally White and upper/middle-class spaces, by students from diverse backgrounds. In this context, the book emphasises the role of Higher Education as contributing to both social mobility and social reproduction, as this increased access and participation coincide with continued patterns of inequality in retention, graduation and experience.
