The 'Diversity' Campus
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project is to analyze the morals and logics informing ‘diversity’ policy at Dalhousie University. In order to do so, this project uses the ‘genealogical’ methods developed by Michel Foucault, as well as Paul Rabinow’s methods for an ‘anthropology of the contemporary’. Through an engagement with history texts dealing with the ideas of ‘race’ and ‘diversity’, and policy documents written and distributed by Dalhousie University, this project shows the contingency of ‘race’ and ‘diversity’, while developing an understanding of how these terms are used by institutions to serve certain purposes and achieve certain goals.
