Alexandre E. Da Costa – Whiteness and Education, 2024
This paper analyses relationships between whiteness and damage in the university classroom through a focus on two contemporary areas of critical education in Canada: raising white racial consciousness and truth and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. First, whiteness is damage-producing -- it orients anti-racist education…

Marjorie Johnstone; Eunjung Lee – Whiteness and Education, 2024
Using a philosophical framework of epistemic injustice and epistemic resistance (Fricker, 2007; Medina, 2013), we examine the recent deaths of nine Indigenous youths in a Northern Ontario city, Thunder Bay. We first document various reports and then we interrogate the impact of this violence on Indigenous communities, considering the egregious…

Gebhard, Amanda; Novotna, Gabriela; Carter, Heather; Oba, Funke – Whiteness and Education, 2023
This article responds to a university's anti-discrimination campaign, ostensibly launched to combat racism. Taking up poststructural principles and anchored in anti-racism literature, we employ a discourse analysis to examine the truth productions about racism circulated by the campaign, and the subject positions to which they give rise. We…

Carranza, Mirna – Whiteness and Education, 2022
Social work education in the Global North is rooted in an underlying discourse of power that defines the 'knower' parameters and, therefore, legitimises who can 'teach'. For this paper, the spatial orientation of whiteness in the classroom in a time of coloniality and intersectionality is the unit of analysis. This whiteness is made visible by not…

Collaboration among Indigenous Peoples and the Saskatchewan government in Canada has led to Indigenous K-12 education progress concerning First Nations and Métis peoples, the Indigenous populations whose traditional territories exist within Saskatchewan. Acknowledging such advancements, this paper is concerned with how white identified students…

Johnstone, Marjorie; Lee, Eunjung – Whiteness and Education, 2022
Using Canada as a case study, we historically trace the imperial formation of whiteness supremacy in education from the colonial era to the current internationalisation of education in Western nations. In a global knowledge economy, knowledge has replaced resource extraction as a significant source of nation building. We argue that the…

Ortega, Yecid – Whiteness and Education, 2021
This article uses a self-reflective autoethnography to critique colonisation and whiteness as systems of marginalisation and racialisation. I examine concepts grounded in post-colonial and anti-racist theories, and I interweave these with my experiences in white spaces in Colombia, the USA and Canada as an educator and researcher. I provide…

Mayor, Christine – Whiteness and Education, 2018
Discussions about trauma-informed schools have rapidly increased in North America, yet there is a dearth of literature on the role of the teacher in these interventions. Studies largely fail to address the needs of racialized and lower SES students who are disproportionately more likely to experience single event and chronic trauma events, but are…

Bablak, Larissa; Raby, Rebecca; Pomerantz, Shauna – Whiteness and Education, 2016
The 'smart Asian' stereotype, part of the model minority discourse, depicts Asian students as studious and academically successful. We draw on critical race theory, with a focus on critical whiteness studies and the concepts of democratic and cultural racism, to examine the racialising effects of this seemingly positive stereotype. Drawing on…
