Resisting barriers to belonging, conceptual critique and critical applications, edited by Beverly S. Faircloth, Laura M. Gonzalez, and Katherine Ramos

Belonging is pivotal for healthy development, and yet members of marginalized communities have repeatedly been told they do not belong in majoritized systems and spaces. The authors seek to intentionally critique older definitions of belonging and help generate a new sense of 'rightful presence' that scholars and practitioners can use
