Recovering Our Past: A Methodological Reflection
García, David G.; Yosso, Tara J.
History of Education Quarterly, v60 n1 p59-72 Feb 2020
Over the last few decades, scholars have called on the field of educational history to more fully account for the perspectives of women and People of Color, and to connect history to contemporary educational research and policy. While a number of scholars answered these calls with important contributions, few have offered a methodological roadmap on how to make these connections. Useful guides exist for initiating a history research project generally, for conducting oral history interviews, and for engaging in qualitative inquiry. However, to our knowledge, there is no similar guide for conducting archival research in educational history, especially for students pursuing questions about Communities of Color. This article offers some pragmatic suggestions for conducting archival research, with a focus on education.
