High-quality scholarship as the most powerful tool for advocacy: Robert Arnove's 50 years in education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Scholars routinely fail to find the proper relationship between advocacy and scholarship. Bob Arnove's passionate commitments motivated decades of scholarship, but rather than predetermining or biasing his findings, it produced a clear-eyed focus on the dynamics of power and their impact on the relatively powerless around the world. Bob knew the forest and the trees--the theoretical and the empirical, the global and the local, the macro and the micro--and everything in between. His sensitivity to global systems and structures was matched by an awareness of subtle inter-personal dynamics in the classroom. But no tool was more critical than impeccable, high-quality research. Bob understood, from personal experience, that commitments drive what is focused upon, not how it is seen.
