This chapter of Promoting Equity and Justice through Pedagogical Partnership introduces the focus of the book: how pedagogical partnerships can contribute to redressing multiple forms of violence and associated harms and promoting greater equity and justice in postsecondary education. Chapter 1 defines key terms, such as equity-seeking groups traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education, pedagogical partnership, violence, harm, and injustice. It then introduces the four authors, Alise de Bie, Elizabeth Marquis, Alison Cook-Sather, and Leslie Luqueño, and their connections to equity work and pedagogical partnership. The introduction also contextualizes the book within current and ongoing efforts to redress systemic injustices that persist in postsecondary education and offers the book and pedagogical partnership as a contribution to this discussion and work.
