Higher Education, De-Centred Subjectivities and the Emergence of a Pedagogical Self among Black and Muslim Students
Harris, Pete; Haywood, Chris; Mac an Ghaill, Mairtin
Race, Ethnicity and Education, v20 n3 p358-371 2017
This article explores late modern Black and Muslim young men's and women's experiences of higher education. Carrying out qualitative research with 14 male and female young people, these students claimed that their Youth and Community Work course at their university made available an alternative representational space, enabling them to develop a major transformation of their sense of identity and self. In deploying the term "pedagogical self," we are attempting to capture their naming pedagogy as central, in their terms, to the "reinvention of their selves". We conclude by suggesting that our research participants' narratives are located within an exploration of late modern identity and the self in higher education. In turn, this enables us to reflect on a generational shift in meanings around racialisation and difference in thinking about the future of higher education in Britain.
