Championing Diversity in Scholarship on Growing Older with Chronic Illness
Statistical data suggest that many people with chronic health conditions pass away at much younger ages than their peers. Yet large quantitative datasets that address aging with chronic illness often do not capture the diversity of people with chronic diseases and their experiences of growing older. The assumptions built into many core data resources on aging often erase the journeys of people occupying marginalized social locations. Likewise, these same assumptions can result in omission of people who survive for long amounts of time while managing conditions with relatively short median life expectancies.

These barriers to understanding diverse experiences of aging with chronic illness are endemic but not unique to quantitative research. Qualitative data collection can indeed offer richer insight into both of these intersecting sets of aging experiences. However, even more in-depth approaches to inquiry with smaller groups of people require asking questions that explicitly explore and affirm the diversity of identities and health statuses held by older adults. A more constructive and impactful approach to capturing meaningful data on diverse experiences of aging with chronic disease is thus to focus on affirming study architecture, rather than viewing one particular set of methods as a panacea for exclusion.

With this new edited volume, the editors support the broader goal of expanding knowledge on diverse trajectories of aging with chronic health conditions. Contributed chapters range from critical reviews to methods primers to empirical investigations. The authors focus synergistically on amplifying the attributes and experiences of diverse social populations and on highlighting journeys of longevity with chronic disease.

Arts-Based Research and the Practice of Freedom in Education advocates for the inclusion of arts-based research in doctoral education programs and, indeed, in educational programs at all levels. The doing of art to investigate ideas, situations, and experiences embraces bell hooks’ concept of education as the practice of freedom, a practice in which everyone can learn and every voice counts.

Through the use of photography, collage, painting, sculpture, textile arts and dance, 10 current and former doctoral students who had enrolled in an arts-based research course show and write about how arts-based methods enriched their educational experiences, celebrated their wholeness by dissolving the barriers between their scholar-artist-teacher-activist selves, and affirmed the inner-artist even in those who doubted they had one. Furthermore, their work establishes that arts-based research can reveal dimensions of experience that elude traditional research methods.

In service to their unique demographic of learners, developmental reading and writing instructors must steadfastly teach basic literacy skills to a diverse student population with varying degrees of literacy proficiency. Even more dauntingly, educators are tasked with procuring andragogically-and-pedagogically appropriate teaching tools – those that meet the needs of the individual student while being accessible and relatable to this adult learner demographic. Of Emoji and Semioliteracy: Reading, Writing, and Texting in the Literacy Instruction Classroom proposes emoji as one such viable literacy and postsecondary writing teaching tool. Drawing from a mixed-methods study, this work chronicles a Texas community college integrated reading and writing project in which students attempt to demonstrate mastery of State-mandated literacy content areas using both traditional writing and emoji. By postulating emoji as a semioliteracy-based instructional tool, this work also explores emoji’s wider implications on teaching reading and writing within the developmental, First-Year Writing, postsecondary, and literacy instruction classes across all levels and disciplines.

In this book, readers will have the opportunity to reflect on the multidisciplinary ideas and experiences presented by higher education and PreK-12 leaders seeking to establish effective partnerships in order to impact collaboration, opportunities for innovation, and growth. Authors explored how identifying, nurturing, and sustaining partnerships in systematic and structured ways is not a one size fits all experience. Partnership development requires flexibility and ongoing engagement with stakeholders. The impact of individualization, access to resources and support systems, and the value of multiple perspectives and experiences is also shared. Each chapter ends with reflective questions to support further reflection on experiences and ideas presented.
