Lubet, Alex – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2011
Participation in music is both a human right and a disability right. Music is a human need in the Darwinian (not Social Darwinian) evolutionary sense.

Fitzgerald, Tanya – International Perspectives on Higher Education Research (MS), 2012
The metaphors of the ivory tower and ivory basement are used in this chapter to reflect how many women understand and experience the academy. The ivory tower signifies a place that is protected, a place of privilege and authority and a place removed from the outside world (and consequently the rigours of the market place). The ivory tower, by…
