Researching Race and Social Justice in Education: Essays in Honour of Barry Troyna.
Sikes, Pat, Ed.; Rizvi, Fazal, Ed.
The essays in this book comprise a "festschrift", a group of essays, to commemorate Barry Troyna, who made an important contribution to thinking about race, racism, and research on social-justice issues in the school context. Much of his work was directed at showing that it was impossible to research questions of "race" relations in a neutral or objective manner. Troyna saw antiracism as an oppositional politics that distinguished it from the liberal individualism within which multiculturalism was embedded. This collection has two purposes: to understand Troyna and his work, and to extend his contribution to an understanding of the complexities of racial politics in education. Following the introduction by Pat Sikes and Fazal Rizvi, the essays include: (1) "Barry Troyna: A Dissenting Voice?" (Carol Vincent); (2) "Barry Troyna as Enlightened Rationalist" (Sally Tomlinson); (3) "Barry Troyna as 'Critical' Social Researcher" (David Halpin); (4) "Barry and the British Educational Research Association" (Jean Rudduck); (5) "The Other Side of Writing: Publishing and Social Justice" (Gaby Weiner); (6) "Theory into Practice: Barry Troyna, the Primary School Governor and Colleague" (Sandra Shipton); (7) "Holding on Together: Conversations With Barry" (Ivor Goodson); (8) "From the Streets of Tottenham to Antipodean South Australia: Seductions and Dilemmas in the Travels of Antiracism" (Vicki Crowley); (9) "Relating Education Policy and Institutionalised Racism: From Discourse to Structure" (Roger Dale); (10) "The State and Education Policy: The Contribution of the Work of Barry Troyna" (Bob Lingard); (11) "Multiculturalism and Antiracism Reconsidered" (John Rex); and (12) "Social Justice in Education After the Conservatives: The Relevance of Barry Troyna's Work" (Richard Hatcher). A list of Troyna's publications are included. (LMI)
