About the Book

This study questions the existing resilience research literature as it is applied to students marginalized within educational institutions. The psychologized field of resilience cannot adequately account for the experiences of marginalized students who have educationally excelled. The purpose of this research was to rearticulate resilience in theory and research from a social critical perspective, using interview data from individuals identified as "resilient" in the sense of attaining significant education and life achievements in spite of their personal hardships. The rearticulating of traditional resilience theory is groomed in an integrative approach to equity, including critical race and postcolonial theory. An integrative equity approach explores personal experiences of hardship in terms of systemic social relations woven through interlocking systems of oppression. Moreover, it takes into account how these experiences, in conjunction with marginalized cultural and spiritual ways of knowing (epistemologies) and ways of being (ontologies) are productive as "resilient" responses to adversity.
