A collaborative endeavour by immigrant women of colour who invite readers to join in the conversation as they dialogue about the immigrant experience in the US and particularly in the ivory tower. Collectively, the narratives in the book strive to further the discourse regarding the multiple interrelationships of identity, culture, self, others, pedagogy, and institutions of higher education. The accounts that follow describe what it means to be a transnational student, professor, scholar, and administrator within the contested terrain of higher education. Favouring an inclusive definition of academe over an elitist one, this book affirms the voices of those women inhabiting different spaces in higher education institutions. The women in this book have experienced the halls of academe in different ways, not always as faculty at a research university. The narratives are organised geographically and draw out the experiences of the third wave of immigrants coming from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean (or West Indies), and Latin America. This book brings together the multidimensional voices of immigrant women of colour to chronicle the immigrant experience in the United States. This book could serve as a text in courses in international education, higher education, intercultural and multicultural education, women's studies, qualitative research studies, and Asian, Caribbean, and Latin American Studies.
