Anti-racism studies have blossomed over the years with scholarship and political work reinforcing each other to cement anti-racist change. But how do we understand anti-racist research?

Rezensionen
"'Critical Issues in Anti-Racist Research Methodologies' is a remarkable contribution to the scholarship on race and educational reform. George J. Sefa Dei and his colleagues have written an important and timely book that charts a new course in the emerging field of anti-racist scholarship. This edited volume is radically eclectic: It covers a wide range of critical issues related to theory, methodology, and policy and foregrounds many of the pivotal tensions and contradictions in this area of education research. Many of these essays are path breaking, insightful, and refreshing in tone and direction. The volume is indispensable reading for students and general practitioners operating in the field of educational policy and reform." (Cameron McCarthy, Professor, Institute of Communications Research University of Illinois at Urbana)
"This important book addresses, and advances, the theory, ethics, and methodologies of anti-racist education research. It raises timely and challengingquestions about how anti-racist education can actually make (more of) a difference - both in academia and, even more importantly, 'on the ground'. This book also provides an exemplary model of the collaborative research approach that it espouses - presenting engaged, egalitarian, empirical, and critical research throughout." (Stephen May, Professor of Education, University of Waikato, New Zealand)
"The authors courageously write about what can only be whispered at in the academy and the classroom about current racial ethnic studies. This provocative confrontation with racism is no defense of the conservative approach to anti-racist research. In this book, which is highly accessible across race, gender, and class, social inequality as well as critical social theory studies scores several points. The liberal left has always been trapped into using race instead of the intersection of race, gender, and class in anti-racist research to bring about social change. This book is the most compelling inclusive anti-racist research critical approach to the more liberal nuanced accommodation and celebration of racial ethnic studies. A must read!" (Jean Ait belkhir, Founder and Editor of the Journal, Race, Gender & Class; Founder and Former Chair of the Journal, American Sociological Association Race, Gender & Class; Acting Chair and Chair Elect of American Sociological Association RGC)…mehr
