Disrupting Postsecondary Prose: Toward a Critical Race Theory of Higher Education
Patton, Lori D.
Urban Education, v51 n3 p315-342 Mar 2016
Ladson-Billings and Tate ushered critical race theory (CRT) into education and challenged racial inequities in schooling contexts. In this article, I consider the role CRT can play in disrupting postsecondary prose, or the ordinary, predictable, and taken for granted ways in which the academy has functioned for centuries as a bastion of racism and White supremacy. I disrupt racelessness in education, but focus primarily on postsecondary contexts related to history, access, curriculum, policy, and research. The purpose of this article is to commemorate and extend Ladson-Billings and Tate's work toward a CRT of higher education.
