Following historical and theoretical overview of African immigration, the heart of this book is based on oral history interviews with forty-seven of the more than twenty-two thousand Africa-born immigrants in Kentucky. From a former ambassador from Gambia, a pharmacist from South Africa, a restaurant owner from Guinea, to a certified nursing assistant from the Democratic Republic of Congo -- every immigrant has a unique and complex story of their life experiences and the decisions that led them to emigrate to the United States. The compelling narratives reveal why and how the immigrants came to the Bluegrass state -- whether it was coming voluntarily as a student or forced because of war -- and how they connect with and contribute to their home countries as well as to the US. The immigrants describe their challenges -- language, loneliness, cultural differences, credentials for employment, ignorance towards Africa, and racism -- and positive experiences such as education, job opportunities, and helpful people. One chapter focuses on family -- including interviews with the second generations -- and how the immigrants identify themselves.
This book presents a comprehensive institutional level analysis of a single public institution of higher education in the Republic of Kenya using the case study method of investigation. It is the first case study to use both qualitative and quantitative research methodology to illuminate the experiences of Kenyan public universities with internationalization post-independence. Focusing on Kenya's oldest national public university--the University of Nairobi's experimentation with internationalization, Kenyan Public Universities in the Age of Internationalization is a first in the East African region. The book argues that attempts by institutions of higher education in Africa to engage in internationalization with the much more older and well established IHEs in the developed world has perpetuated the colonial legacy that has relegated these institutions to the position of the Other in the new international order. Several policy implications are offered on what it means to participate in internationalization from a marginal, peripheral position. The conventional assumption that political independence would bring to most African countries, and by extension their national public universities, a period of freedom from political, economic and cultural subjugation and exploitation by the more powerful world nations has proved elusive. This book is intended for a broad audience in the field of Comparative International Education. The mixed research methods used in this book will certainly appeal to instructors, students, and general readers interested in understanding the experiences of historically marginalized developing World institutions of higher education with internationalization.
"This book is a multidisciplinary analysis of selected issues and challenges that continue to shape the educational experience of blacks in post-colonial Africa and the post-civil rights United States of America. Thematically organized in two parts with a total of thirteen chapters authored by experts in the field of higher education, this book presents higher education from many perspectives of the humanistic and social science disciplines and thus helps readers to understand the subject in its totality. The chapters discuss higher educational traditions upheld in selected countries in Africa and selected topics in the United States of America and Africa during the colonial period or era of civil right movement, the changes and exchanges that occurred afterwards, and a comprehensive assessment of higher education policy outcomes in recent years." --Amazon
This volume examines the diverse ways in which universities and colleges around the world are partnering and collaborating with other institutions to fulfill their missions and visions. University partnerships not only include collaborations between universities but also include university-school (basic education) collaborative partnerships to improve local school systems. The increasing pressures to remove access and participation barriers, and the increasing pressures to mitigate practices restricting free flow of education across borders have created a growing global space for educational services of all types. As a result, traditional institutional boundaries have expanded to better respond to increasing pressures on them by the growing demand for higher education services. The boundaries between educational institutions and other entities such as government, business, and non-profit organizations have become more fluid and this has resulted in increased involvement by institutions, faculty, and students in activities outside the traditional boundaries of the classroom. This edited volume will specifically explore university partnerships for academic and program development.
"This anthology brings together contemporary voices from East Africa's new generation of writers unconstrained by geographical boundaries. A significant number of authors included in this volume were not only born after the three East African countries attained political independence, but have also schooled, lived, and worked in their home countries and abroad. Their perspectives and worldview are as diverse as the geo-political and literary environments that have produced them. The voices presented here transcend the confines of the political boundaries shamelessly drawn and marked during the scramble for and partition of Africa, and the historical reality of the aftermath of voluntary and involuntary dispersion of people of African descent to foreign lands. Focusing on themes of alienation, search for identity, disillusionment, survival, among other thematic areas, the selections included in this volume touch on cross-cultural issues that transcend the East African region into the wider global community. This anthology is recommended for undergraduate Introduction to African Literature courses in colleges and universities all over the world."--Publisher's website

"Pat Owen is that rare poet who witnesses the divine in actually-lived lives--in wrinkles and caf's, otters and baseball, vulvas and ferns. Here is a music as attentive and tender as the practitioner's Zazen-breath, and like the Zazen master, here is a tenderness that is hard, sharp, quick. Set in the dangerous ecosystem of suburbia, that anesthetizing place, Orion's Belt at the End of the Drive offers the reader a striking wake-up alarm for the heart." --Rebecca Gayle Howell
