Queer Subjects and Religious Discourses
“Burke and Greteman have together done the apparently impossible. By refusing to accept the polarities either in their profession or our society, and approaching tense issues from the side, rather than head on, they have made possible an anthropology of teaching which is able to be simultaneously respectful and embracing of both queer and religious ways of being within the overall adventure of education. Loving, liking, considering, failing, forgiving, reconciling, and daring: each one of these is filled out and given a life-giving role in the way in which teaching leads us out and on.”
James Alison, Catholic Priest, Theologian and Author
“Improvement Science: Promoting Equity in Schools is a book for all of us who deeply feel the moral imperative to work for equity in our educational system. This book provides concrete steps and a clear methodology to start now and to stop the practice of postponing the work until another school year. This book gives teachers and students hope that change can happen now.”
Elena García-Velasco, M.A.T., 2012 Oregon Teacher of the Year
A Caregiver’s Journey
"...Donald R. Collins has created a powerful and important research volume on an unbelievably difficult topic as he shares his experiences as a caregiver for his wife. Both researchers and caregivers will benefit from the sharing as the book is a profound teaching tool for those who attempt, and even need, to combine their very personal life and circumstances with their professional research. This combination and the life support and solace it can provide is literally the most important reason to read this volume. Further, the sharing is both intimate and difficult, yet provides life affirming experiences and perspectives for all of us."

A Beginner's Guide for Qualitative Researchers
“The documentary archive is two-edged. It honors and brings history alive, offering a window into the voices, pains and social injustices of the past. The same window turns history back on itself, using the cracks, and contradiction of the past to imagine new futures, new utopias. Bringing the newcomer into the field through the multiple forms and uses of the archive is brilliant…The field owes the authors a big thanks.”
Norman K. Denzin, Emeritus Professor, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
