The Divided Self: The Double Consciousness of Faculty of Color in Community Colleges
Levin, John S.; Walker, Laurencia; Haberler, Zachary; Jackson-Boothby, Adam
Community College Review, v41 n4 p311-329 Oct 2013
Through qualitative field methods research addressing faculty of color in four California community colleges, this investigation examines and explains faculty experiences and professional sense making. By combining critical race theory with social identity theory, our perspective underlines the potential social and ethnic identity conflicts inherent in the daily lives of faculty of color. The professional and social identities of faculty of color are not necessarily compatible, leading to a condition of "double consciousness," or what we refer to as "the divided self."
