Finding A Way: Encouraging Underrepresented Groups in Geography. An Annotated Bibliography. Pathways in Geography Series Resource Publication, Title No. 5.
This bibliography is intended to begin the process of awareness necessary to encourage young women and racial and ethnic minorities in geography classes across the nation. Women and minority racial and ethnic groups have long been seriously underrepresented in the discipline of geography both in the applied and professional world and in academic institutions. This project is the first national effort to address the issue of equity in achievement and retention in geography classes. The objective of this document is to encourage research and action on these issues by providing brief backgroud information and a bibliography of sources related to the following categories: (1) the status and participation of women and racial and ethnic groups in geography; (2) gender/ethnic-related differences in achievement; (3) possible causes of gender/ethnic-related differences in participation and/or achievement; (4) intervention strategies; (5) available resource materials; and (6) questions for future research. The bibliography includes published research papers, articles, and books. Since concern with the issue of women and minorities in geography began to appear in the literature during the 1970s, the bibliography is generally limited to publications from 1970 to 1992. (EH)
