Matias, Cheryl E.; Boucher, Colleen – Whiteness and Education, 2023
This theoretical article critically reflects on critical whiteness studies (CWS), particularly addressing the critique that CWS does not have racial theory and therefore cannot be considered a theoretical framework in which to analyse race.

Gadd, Rebecca – Whiteness and Education, 2023
If teacher education is to become a site for disrupting racism and promoting racial justice, teacher educators must critically analyse how whiteness shapes our work and develop strategies to avoid reproducing it in our instruction.

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…

Eriksen, Kristin Gregers – Whiteness and Education, 2022
This article sheds light on the elusive presence of race, racism, and Whiteness in Norwegian primary schools.

I argue that applying an affective theoretical…

Boyce, Benjamin S. – Whiteness and Education, 2021
Citizens of the contemporary Unites States are faced with the cognitive dissonance of a society which claims to reject the racist, sexist, homophobic and ableist ways of our ancestors, while daily experience betrays the inaccuracy of that world view. When confronted , those in privileged positions have learned to lean on social scripts in which we…

An 'ethic of solidarity' offers five areas for white researchers to reflect and act on:…

Teacher educators report preservice teachers often have difficulty understanding the structural nature of oppression in the United States. A common explanation for this disconnect is the lack of time reserved to discuss such issues within teacher education programmes.
