Heath takes readers back to Hymes's years as Dean of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. She recalls, in particular, his relentless passion for introducing public school administrators to ethnography's potential for seeing what could be done to increase equity and social justice within public education. She contrasts this “new love” that Hymes developed at the School of Education with his “long love” of North American Indian ethnopoetics. She suggests where and how these two kinds of love might work in today's sociopolitical world so often holistically described by encompassing terms such as global, post-racial, post-literate, and technologically dedicated.[Dell Hymes, school-based ethnography, social justice, ethnography of education]
