O'Donnell, Jennifer Lee – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2020
Popular educators are encountering students' past trauma and dealing with how to engage ethically with social issues through "difficult knowledge" (Britzman 1998).

Mulimbi, Bethany; Dryden-Peterson, Sarah – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This study examines how students of majority and minority ethnic backgrounds in Botswana understand national identity as inclusive of their ethnic groups. Within assimilationist policies and curriculum, we find that the value of national identity rests on its positioning as a path toward higher levels of education and employment. However, for…

Hernández-Saca, David I. – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Learning disabilities (LD) researchers have produced a knowledge base about the academic side of LD. A gap exists concerning the experiences of individuals with LD, particularly their feeling-meaning-making about having LDs.

Tawasil, Amina – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
The Iranian howzevi (seminarian) have been key to the Islamic regime's development. This paper takes as its critical focus the branding of the howzevi as the unenlightened for their support of the regime. I take de Certeau's reading as poaching to look at how life scripts or ideologies failed to work through women's bodies. Drawing on fifteen…

Solano-Campos, Ana – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This ethnographic case study explores Nicaragua--Costa Rica cross-border dynamics, one of the most important South-South migration flows in the Central American region.

Thorkelson, Eli – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Through an ethnographic case study of campus politics at a Parisian university, this paper shows that neoliberal university reforms in France failed to create neoliberal subjectivities. Instead, the reforms provoked conflicts between direct and representative democracy, traditions which had organized post-1960s French university culture. These…

Hornberger, Nancy H.; Kvietok Dueñas, Frances – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Drawing on an ethnographic monitoring engagement with Kichwa intercultural bilingual educators in the Peruvian Amazon, we argue for ethnographic monitoring as a method and the continua of biliteracy as a heuristic for mapping biliteracy teaching in Indigenous contexts of bilingualism. Through our mapping, we uncover tensions in the teaching of…

Woodson, Ashley N. – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This article uses the construct of "racial code word" to advance theory about unspoken, racialized expectations that accompany seemingly neutral historical concepts. Critical race ethnographic methods were used to examine how eight black teenagers made sense of the term "civil rights leader" and the assumptions that supported…

Herron, Melinda – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019

Tracing research relationships developed with…
