Rewarding Diversity an African American Inquiry by R. Baxter Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper offers a reflection on multiculturalism, particularly within southern U.S. universities. An opening section reviews the types of confusion and difficulty encountered in trying to define multiculturalism and its place in higher education. The argument goes on to suggest looking for cultural diversity that merits reward and thereby fosters multiculturalism. This section includes a discussion of the difficulties of distinguishing quality scholarship from hype. Several examples from a graduate seminar at Tennessee University are offered to illustrate some of the issues and difficulties of genuine multicultural instruction, on the premise that quality inquiry is a powerful experience for students. In addition, this section suggests that the best approach will be grounded in traditional disciplines and focus on a specific text. Most crucial to the inquiry is to center on the process of awareness over the presentation of factual knowledge. The most difficult task for department heads and deans is to look constantly for ways to reward students and professors who achieve a breakthrough in critical thinking. The paper closes by emphasizing the special role that southern scholarship plays in encouraging true intellectual diversity. Includes six notes. (JB)

Critical Insights: Langston Hughes by R. Baxter Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Edited and with an introduction by R. Baxter Miller, Professor of English and the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Georgia, this volume in the Critical Insights series presents a variety of new essays on the poet laureate of Harlem. For readers who are encountering Hughes for the first time, a biographical sketch then relates the details of his life and four essays survey the critical reception of Hughes work, explore its cultural and historical contexts, situate Hughes among his contemporaries, and review key themes in his work. Readers seeking a deeper understanding of the writer can then move on to other essays that explore topics like Hughes' relations to the Harlem Renaissance and black aesthetics, blues music, religion, and modernism. Still other essays consider Hughes' portrayals of women and families, his politics, and his depictions of racial violence. Works covered include Hughes' most commonly studied poems, like "Theme for English B" and "Montage of a Dream Deferred"; the Semple stories; classic short stories like "The Blues I'm Playing" and "Blessed Assurance"; Hughes' two autobiographies; and a sampling of his plays
