My Life in Canada
Is there a future time when newcomers and visible minorities will be enabled to feel like they belong in Canada? Or will they have to accept their experience as visitors to Canada no matter how long they have lived here? These are some of the questions Anthony Stewart tackles eloquently and with considerable wit.
Rethinking Integration in the University
“Courageous and peerless, accessible and engaging, Stewart’s critique of the unseemly whiteness of the academy is a tour de force. His account of white academic privilege, homogeneity, cowardice, and hypocrisy with respect to matters of race and integration proceeds with keen insight and telling intellectual rigor. His analysis of white academia’s ‘theoretical’ evisceration of race and its practical and discursive actualities is nothing short of brilliant. The indictment of the monolithic and self-satisfied white demographic of academic departments of history, English, and philosophy (“the big three”) is wonderfully timely. Any scholar - especially any un-self-conscious white or black scholar - who fails to read Stewart’s work loses. This critique is a triumph of public sphere activism … straight out of Canada!” – Dr. Houston A. Baker, Jr., Distinguished University Professor, Department of English, Vanderbilt University.
