The Sociopolitical Turn in Mathematics Education
Gutierrez, Rochelle
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v44 n1 p37-68 Jan 2013
Over the past decade, the mathematics education research community has incorporated more sociocultural perspectives into its ways of understanding and examining teaching and learning. However, researchers who have a long history of addressing anti-racism and social justice issues in mathematics have moved beyond this sociocultural view to espouse sociopolitical concepts and theories, highlighting identity and power at play. This article highlights some promising conceptual tools from critical theory and post-structuralism and makes an argument for why taking the sociopolitical turn is important for both researchers and practitioners. (Contains 17 footnotes.)
