Miller, Paula K. – Whiteness and Education, 2017
Historically, white colleges and universities often normalise white culture and white identities while maintaining a facade of diversity and inclusion in ways that foster racial tension and exclusion. This study circumvents this normativity through the creation of a White Racial Identity Scale (WRIS) that provides an empirical measure of the…

Pezzetti, Karen – Whiteness and Education, 2017
This study employs ethnographic methods to explore the ways that white American preservice teachers in two different "Social Contexts of Education" classes conceptualise "diversity" and use this term to accomplish discursive goals. Data collected from observation notes, interviews and written assignments suggest that…

Locke, Leslie Ann – Whiteness and Education, 2017
Here, I include parts of my personal positionality or story in terms of my privileges (white skin, cisgender, straight, educational attainment, ability, language) alongside my marginalities (low income). Specifically, I highlight how while I never had much green (i.e. cash/income), I have had lots of white (privilege). Relatedly, I explain how my…

Linley, Jodi L. – Whiteness and Education, 2017
As a white assistant professor of mostly white graduate students who will become higher education leaders, I work to dismantle whiteness in my curriculum, assignments and pedagogy. I make meaning of my own white identity through my commitment to reflexivity as a constant activity. Equally salient are my identities as a queer, able-bodied,…

Kogan, Liuba; Galarza, Francisco – Whiteness and Education, 2017
This paper aims to identify the 'whitening' strategies used by undergraduate students in a developing country with strong levels of ethno-racial discrimination and social mobility. We adopt a critical, constructivist theoretical perspective and a qualitative approach, in the design and analysis, for which we use three instruments: surveys, focus…

This essay examines the significance of the fortuitous Fisher v. University of Texas Supreme Court decision within a broader historical framework of similar affirmative action legal disputes.

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…

Cabrera, Nolan L. – Whiteness and Education, 2016
This paper considers the positionality of a Man of Colour studying Whiteness among male undergraduates, and the methodological challenges this poses. While some have explored the politics of representation when a researcher comes from the socially dominant group or from the same racial group there are almost no explorations of the…

McKenzie, Kathryn Bell; Phillips, Glenn Allen – Whiteness and Education, 2016
In what some have called a 'post-racial' era, with the two-term election of the first African American president of the US, it is often assumed that pre-service and newly in-serviced millennial teachers would have an advanced equity consciousness. However, in this NSF-funded qualitative study that explored the equity consciousness of new teachers…

Rodriguez, Jason; Freeman, Kendralin J. – Whiteness and Education, 2016
In this article, we argue that discourses of "diversity" and "intersectionality" can undermine efforts to address racism, protect white privilege, and marginalize people of color. To illustrate how, we present an ethnographic account of student, staff, and faculty efforts to infuse campus culture at a small liberal arts college…

Crozier, Gill; Burke, Penny Jane; Archer, Louise – Whiteness and Education, 2016
In spite of the relative success of the Widening Participation policy and strategies to increase the numbers of students from Black and Minority and White working-class backgrounds going to university, universities in Britain continue to be White and middle-class-dominated institutions. We found, in our two-year qualitative Higher Education…

Leonardo, Zeus – Whiteness and Education, 2016
A critical analysis of whiteness unavoidably relies on using metaphors in order to understand or apprehend its object of study. In this effort, scholars of whiteness recruit tropes to describe whiteness and in the process discursively constitute its contours, concerns and contradictions. In short, the tropics of whiteness reveal something…

Cann, Colette N. – Whiteness and Education, 2016
This article imagines what it might look like for White people to commit to racial justice in the U.S. as if their very lives depended on its success. Inspired by the venerable storytelling of Derrick Bell, Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, W. E. B. Du Bois and Adrien Wing, as well as the tradition of science fiction in Black Diasporan writing,…
