Sandra Acker is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. She is a sociologist of education whose research interests include women and education, teachers' work and academic careers and cultures. She has taught in the USA, Britain and Canada. Currently she is Principal Investigator of a study funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada of transitions over time in teacher education institutions, especially with regard to the research culture, which increasingly shapes the work of academics. She is the author of a book on elementary school teachers' workplace culture entitled The Realities of Teachers' Work: Never a Dull Moment (Continuum, 1999).

Marie Battiste is a Mi'kmaw educator, Professor in the College of Education, and Coordinator of the Indian and Northern Education Program within the Department of Educational Foundations at the University of Saskatchewan. Her historical research of Mi'kmaw literacy and education as a graduate student at Harvard University and later at Stanford University where she received her doctorate degree in curriculum and teacher education provided the foundation for her later writings in cognitive imperialism, linguistic and cultural integrity, and decolonization of aboriginal education. A recipient of two honorary degrees from St Mary's University and from her alma mater University of Maine at Farmington, she has worked actively with First Nations schools and communities as an administrator, teacher, consultant and curriculum developer. Her research interests are in initiating institutional change in the decolonization of education, language and social justice policy and power, and post-colonial educational approaches that recognize and affirm the political and cultural diversity of Canada and the ethical protection and advancement of indigenous knowledge. A technical expert to the United Nations, she has most recently written Protecting Indigenous Knowledge and Heritage: A Global Challenge with J. Youngblood Henderson (Purich Press, 2000) and edited Reclaiming Indigenous Voice and Vision (UBC Press, 2000). She was senior editor with Jean Barman for First Nations Education in Canada: The Circle Unfolds (UBC Press, 1995).
