Since the 1970s, the global practice of diversity has sparked a number of inclusion initiatives, such as affirmative action in universities, implemented to redress historical inequality. Contributors to this special issue argue that, in recent years, these initiatives have shifted away from their original intent toward a concept of “diversity” in which inclusion is theorized to systematically deny access to minoritized populations. Using this current discourse as a lens to consider questions of economic disparity and social justice, contributors ask, “What kind of inclusion is ‘diversity’?”
