Shifting White Ideological Scripts: The Educational Benefits of Inter- and Intraracial Curricular Dialogues on the Experiences of White College Students
Ford, Kristie A.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v5 n3 p138-158 Sep 2012
What pedagogies and inter-/intragroup dynamics facilitate increased understanding of issues of race, white racial identity development, and racism in the U.S.? Can white students effectively learn about whiteness by themselves as well as in collaboration with students of diverse racial backgrounds? This project examines white student learning in the Intergroup People of Color-White People Dialogues and Intra-Group White Racial Identity Dialogues at a small liberal arts college in the Northeast. Through content analyses of student papers, this study advances our understanding of how white students make sense of their own racial group membership and how they navigate cross-racial interactions in college; it also continues and extends national efforts to conduct and disseminate research on both the substantive nature and process of Inter-/Intra-Group Dialogues and their impact on students. (Contains 1 table and 11 footnotes.)
