"Everything Is about Balance": Graduate Education Faculty and the Navigation of Difficult Discourses on Race
Murray-Johnson, Kayon; Ross-Gordon, Jovita M.
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v68 n2 p137-156 May 2018
The purpose of this multiple case study was to describe the experiences of graduate education faculty of varying racial/ethnic backgrounds, learning to navigate difficult discourses on race effectively over time. The study employed positionality as a theoretical framework. Findings indicate that faculty balance what we refer to as "strategies of self" in a bid to work through difficult race talk. In turn, their practice may hold strong potential for influencing a fresh and more holistic approach to engaging in classroom race talk.
