This article foregrounds the salience of "lived experience" in the mediation of unlearning racialized habitus (Bourdieu and Wacquant 1992), and in learning and relearning the "truth about reality," or the truth about others. This article emphasizes the value of positive "lived experience" for anti-racist and…

van Louw, T.; Waghid, Y. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2008

Chuene, K. M. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2011
The classroom is a micro-culture where socio and socio-mathematical norms of interactions are fostered by an instructor who represents the mathematics community.
