Goossens, Cedric; Muls, Jaël; Stevens, Peter; Van Gorp, Angelo – Whiteness and Education, 2018
It has been argued that white middle classes act in the best interest of their offspring, even when these actions clash with their values. In urban contexts, parents often do this by avoiding ethnically diverse educational settings. Drawing on 35 interviews, this article aims to gain a deeper understanding of the school-choice process of white…

Arday, Jason – Whiteness and Education, 2018
The challenging of normative Whiteness is paramount in dismantling the cycle of inequality that permeates society. The persistent and operant nature of Whiteness within the Academy is enduring and depicts faculty of colour as deficient or incapable. The articulation of racialised experiences has become an instrument of empowerment for faculty of…

Shyman, Eric – Whiteness and Education, 2018
In the USA, the dominant narrative surrounding the issue of racial and ethnic discrimination in American public education centres on the rhetoric of steady progress towards equality. While the nationalistic-based dominant discourse maintains that progress towards a desegregated, multicultural American school system steeped in equality and mutual…

Blaisdell, Benjamin – Whiteness and Education, 2018
White discourse is a discourse that functions to support white supremacy. Based on an ethnographic study in a U.S. elementary school, this article analyses how white teachers use appeals to discomfort as a form of white discourse to resist school-based racial equity work. It also examines how equity coaching -- an approach to professional…

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…

Gatwiri, Kathomi – Whiteness and Education, 2018
This paper uses an autoethnographic Freirean approach to theorise how white power moves in universities, and to speak to the pedagogical challenges (and successes) that I have encountered as a scholar of colour teaching in predominantly white universities in Australia and my various attempts to decolonise my teaching. While in social work…

Twomey, Sarah Jane – Whiteness and Education, 2018
As a way to develop a more somatic response to race and the legacy of injury and violence towards the first peoples of the Hawaiian nation, this paper's aim is to draw a connection between the early writings of American women to Hawai'i and my own positionality as a feminist scholar in present day Hawai'i. Using a feminist, postcolonial lens, I…

Pechenkina, Ekaterina; Liu, Helena – Whiteness and Education, 2018
This article extends the critical race literature in education by theorising the ways through which white power passes through the bodies of people of colour in higher education institutions. Using autoethnographic inquiry of our experiences as non-white academic and professional staff in two Australian universities, we examine the ways we became…

Kitts, Hope – Whiteness and Education, 2018
Building on the call to racialise Vygotsky's sociocultural theory of development, this paper examines the role of speech in the development of counter-hegemonic white identity. Through a Vygotskian lens, I argue that naming racism as white supremacy, valuing emotion as knowledge, preparing for discomfort, and designing increased opportunities for…

Blankenship-Knox, Ann E. – Whiteness and Education, 2017
In this critical autoethnography, I discuss and critically reflect on some of my personal identities, specifically being a white, queer woman in the Deep South of the United States, that inform how I interact with the world and my students. I then discuss how the interplay of these identities has led me to particular pedagogical strategies for…

Lensmire, Timothy J. – Whiteness and Education, 2017
Grounded in critical whiteness studies and informed by the practices and goals of autoethnography, this article narrates and analyses two stories for what they might teach us about problems of belonging for white anti-racists. In the first story, I recount a verbal attack by a white person against another white person during a conference. I…

Shapses Wertheim, Samantha – Whiteness and Education, 2017
This qualitative study explores how white students make meaning of positive and negative cross-racial interaction, and how these interactions contribute to growth and learning. Utilising the theoretical frameworks of Critical Race Theory and intercultural maturity, this study provides evidence that cross-racial interactions reflect both positive…
