Descrizione:

Language: English . Brand New Book. Even in those areas of academia which one would consider to be most resistant to white domination (such as critical race theory and multicultural education), both covert and overt racial oppression are apparent. What is the role of white academics in these fields in creating racial oppression? Is there any escape from white supremacy and do white academics have any role in resisting it or are they always complicit? In this book, fictional tropes are used to consider the role of whiteness in academia and in wider struggles against racial oppression. The volume consists of several counter stories , each one of which critiques an aspect of whiteness and uses themes from genres such as science fiction, detective fiction and fan fiction to explore power and the contradictions associated with it. Whiteness in Academia will be useful for those researching race, debating the role of academics in social change and examining research methods in education. Of particular interest to academics, researchers and activists, the volume provides a text which opens up new ways of thinking about both their positionality and politics. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: Counter stories are common in the analysis of race where fictional tropes are used to reveal truths about racism. In this book, counter-stories are used to consider the role of 'whiteness' in academia, education and in struggles against racial oppression. The monograph consists of several counter-stories each one of which considers an aspect of 'whiteness' using themes from genres such as science fiction, detective fiction, children's stories and 'fan fiction'. The book uses argument in a novel mixture of academic discourse and fiction. It is a genre breaking book that will be useful for those researching race, debating the role of academics in social change and examining research methods in education. In particular, for academics and researchers it provides a text which opens up new ways for thinking about their positioning and methodology. The user friendly format of the counter-narratives means that it is especially useful for seminar use. The book occupies a unique niche in the market for those involved in social / educational research, or working in academia. The style of the book makes it accessible as a full text, or in discrete chapters, to students and academics.
