International Journal of Diversity in Organisations, Communities and Nations by Mary Kalantzis
Book Description** Contents available at http://ijd.cgpublisher.com/product/pub.29/prod.654 ** The International Journal of Diversity in Organisations, Communities and Nations creates a space for discussion for anyone with an interest in, and concern for, mediating cultural difference and diversity. The journal examines the realities of difference and diversity today, empirically and critically as well as optimistically and strategically, touching upon the topics of globalisation, identity and social group formation. At a time of virulent reactions to difference and globalisation (ethnonationalism, racist backlash, parochialism and protectionism), there is a pressing need to reflect critically on the shape and the possibilities of the normative agendas of diversity and globalism. The journal is a place for thinking about and discussing these pressing matters, and in ways that range from the 'big picture' and the theoretical, to the practical and everyday business of negotiating difference and diversity in organisations, communities and civic life. The journal is relevant for academics, educators and research students in the fields of globalisation, nationalism, anthropology and cultural studies, tourism studies, ethnic studies, indigenous studies, gender studies, disability studies, gay and lesbian studies, diversity management; public administrators and policy-makers; private and public sector leaders: diversity management, equal employment opportunity, human resource development and workplace trainers and change agents-anyone with an interest, and concern for, mediating cultural difference. The International Journal of Diversity in Organisations, Communities and Nations is peer-reviewed, supported by rigorous processes of criterion-referenced article ranking and qualitative commentary, ensuring that only intellectual work of the greatest substance and highest significance is published.
