Vol. 7 No. 2 (2017): Understanding & Dismantling Privilege, Special Issue: Academics & Activists Advocating for Equity, Justice and Action

This Double Special Issue was envisioned as an international collaborative endeavor between colleagues located at educational institutions in both Canada and the United States. The White Privilege Symposium Canada (WPSC) event, held at Brock University from September 30 – October 1, 2016, an initiative of the Antiracism Task Force set the stage for the inception of this collaboration. The two journals provide a platform for our mutual desire to exchange knowledge across Canadian and US borders specifically regarding strategies and action plans that are being used by individuals and organizations that strive to merge duality between environments (the world of social activists and that of academics). These works provide inroads into a critical understanding about White privilege as articulated through heterogenous writings, reflections, workshops and papers offered at WPSC..."
