El Catedrático Novohispano: Una Semblanza General, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes Jan 2001

El Catedrático Novohispano: Una Semblanza General, Jesús F. Galaz-Fontes

Jesús Francisco Galaz Fontes

Luego de contextualizar la "educación superior" que se impartió durante la colonia en la Nueva España, el trabajo describe, con base a la literatura histórica pertinente, diversos aspectos de la "profesión académica" durante ese periodo. Así, se discute la naturaleza del trabajo académico característico de esa época, la forma en que se impartían las clases, la contratación de nuevos profesores y las relaciones entre el profesorado y la burocracia gubernamental y eclesiástica con la que se relacionaban los catedráticos ("académicos") de la Real y Pontifica Universidad de México.


Alternative Discourses In Southeast Asia, Syed Farid Alatas Jan 2001

Alternative Discourses In Southeast Asia, Syed Farid Alatas

farid alatas

This article brings into focus the question of alternative discourses in the social sciences. Alternative discourses are works that attempt to debunk ideas that have become entrenched in the social sciences, partly as a result of colonialism and the continuing Eurocentrism in the social sciences. In the context of Southeast Asia as well as much of the non-Western world, alternative discourses in the social sciences could also be referred to collectively as counter- Eurocentric social science. This paper discusses the emergence of alternative discourses in Southeast Asia, the defintion of alternative discourse, and the future of these discourses in our ...


Rights Of Inequality: Rawlsian Justice, Equal Opportunity, And The Status Of The Family, Justin Schwartz Jan 2001

Rights Of Inequality: Rawlsian Justice, Equal Opportunity, And The Status Of The Family, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

Is the family subject to principles of justice? In A Theory of Justice, John Rawls includes the (monogamous) family along with the market and the government as among the "basic institutions of society" to which principles of justice apply. Justice, he famously insists, is primary in politics as truth is in science: the only excuse for tolerating injustice is that no lesser injustice is possible. The point of the present paper is that Rawls doesn't actually mean this. When it comes to the family, and in particular its impact on fair equal opportunity (the first part of the the ...

Bringing Political Theory To University Governance: The University Of California And The Universidad Nacional Autónoma De México, Brian Pusser, Imanol Ordorika

Imanol Ordorika

While important normative work has been produced on various aspects of governance, including trusteeship (Cheit, Holland and Taylor, 1991; Kerr and Gade, 1989), institutional autonomy (Berdahl, 1990), and governance struc- tures (Richardson ct al., 1998) little theoretical inquiry has been devoted to two essential questions of governance: how arc key decisions actually made in the postsecondary sector, and who makes them? In order to advance our unuer- stanuing of higher education governance and policy-making, it is first essential to restore a political theoretical framework to the study of higher cuucation organizations. To that end we begin with an historical review ...

Multilateral Agencies And Higher Education Reform In Latin America, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez, Armando Alcántara

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

During the last decade, the debate over higher education took up a significant space on the agendas of various international agencies, including multilateral development banks and other intergovernmental agencies. This fact points to the importance of the subject within a broader discussion that refers to national development projects and their articulation within the new international economic and political order. In this context, the purpose of this article is to discern the principal lines of argument at work and their implications for the transformation of higher education in Latin America. To this end, we have chosen four cases that we consider ...


La Universidad Latinoamericana Y El Siglo Xxi: Algunos Retos Estructurales, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez Jan 2001

La Universidad Latinoamericana Y El Siglo Xxi: Algunos Retos Estructurales, Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

Roberto Rodríguez-Gómez

En América Latina el proceso de transición manifiesta rasgos comunes con la dinámica de cambio global, pero también expresiones particulares. Ante todo, las transformaciones económicas se han expresado a través de una serie cíclica de momentos de crisis-recuperación. Visto en una perspectiva de conjunto, el período que comprende las últimas décadas del siglo XX se caracteriza tanto por la reforma del Estado como por la implantación de programas de ajuste que, con las particularidades de cada caso, han sido adoptados por la totalidad de los países de la región. La simultaneidad de estas transiciones ha hecho sentir su peso en ...

On Analyzing Hbcu Admissions And Recruitment Material, Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

Shaun R. Harper, Ph.D.

In light of shifting African American student enrollment patterns at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), this study examines admissions and recruitment materials mailed to prospective students from 13 HBCUs. The material was analyzed using factors from the Search stage of Hossler and Gallagher’s (1987) college choice model. Results revealed variations in quality among public and private Black Colleges. The significance of these results, specific recommendations for recruitment, and implications for future research are also included.
