Critical Reflections

Editor's Introduction

  • Bree Trisler


The present social and political climate has led university students and staff to encounter seemingly “new” challenges and opportunities on campus. As the White House administration support xenophobic policies and everyday practices (e.g., “America first” trade and economic policies and support for the physical harm of opposition) and young citizens become increasingly involved in cultural politics, the university classroom becomes a central place for students and teachers to reflect upon the tensions and implications they face.
