#TalkToMe: Changing the narrative on race, religion, and education is a non-fiction memoir from inspiring thought leaders on how the power of dialogue can overcome racism, xenophobia, intolerance, and violence. It is the real life story of how ordinary Americans are rising beyond the forces that seek to drive us apart, and instead finding paths to peace and understanding. These are the stories you won't hear in the media because the fact is, good news just doesn't sell newspapers. They are stories that remain untold because bigotry sells more than unity. Terror, more than tolerance. Instead, I want to give these powerful stories of pluralism the platform they deserve. I wrote #TalkToMe because I believe that our differences are a source of strength, not division. I believe things aren't hopeless and I believe we can repair the damage done. We must work together, and it all begins with dialogue. But we can't sit idle and we can't waste another day. So come on, #TalkToMe.

Race Ethnography And Education

This book focuses on race and ethnography, and in particular, it addresses two significant issues. Firstly, leading thinkers and emerging scholars in the field explicate the complicated nature of race intersections, theories, and meanings in educational ethnography. The ethnographic accounts consider schooling, which is then extended to larger educational settings, bound by unique and peculiar histories and locations. By amalgamating this selection of papers into one issue, the book both challenges the effects of educational histories, policies and practices, by interrogating theories and meanings of race, and positions race and racism in ethnography with the hope of presenting new applications and developments in ethnographic methodologies, theories, and practices. The volume then develops the conversation by helping to build scholarship in understanding race meanings, intersections and theories in educational and social sciences. With the escalating attention given to the study of race scholarship in recent years, there is still considerable information that scholars in the field need to know about how ethnographers and ethnography, from diverse comparative and international schools and educational settings, respond to racialized and racist practices, while challenging and developing theories about race and racism in diverse global terrains and locations. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnography and Education.

Educational Leadership For Transformation And Social Justice

Educational Leadership for Transformation and Social Justice examines the relationship between the lived experiences of educational leaders at the University of the Free State in South Africa and how they think about and practice leadership for transformation and social justice. Based on biographical information, public speeches, published writings, and in-depth semi-structured face-to-face interviews, the book presents and analyses seven chapter-length narratives of these leaders. This book explores how some leaders at the University of the Free State – from the vantage point of various racialized and gendered identities, and generational experiences – conceptualize and enact leadership for transformation and social justice. Ambrosio argues that there are certain values, beliefs, concepts, principles, and ways of thinking that cut across their experiences and demographic differences. The narratives are presented in the leaders’ own words, and describe how their lived experiences shaped their values and identities, and inform how they think about and practice leadership for transformation and social justice. One convergence that emerged among these leaders is that their leadership is an extension of who they are, of their core values, identities and ethical commitments. Another is that they are motivated by visions of change that go beyond the University; by bigger dreams that infuse their work with meaning and purpose. With its in-depth analysis of the narratives, this book will provide educational leaders who have an orientation towards transformation and social justice with insights that enable them to think differently about how to make the policies, programs, and institutional culture of their own universities more equitable and just. It will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of education, educational justice, higher education, educational leadership and change, social justice and racial justice.

Teacher Narrative As Critical Inquiry

Research on teacher learning has too often excluded personal development in considering professional development. This timely book argues that the development of a professional identity is inextricable from personal identity. It suggests that when teachers are given the opportunity to compose their own stories of learning within a supportive community, they can then begin to compose new narratives of identity and practice. This book is a critical tool for educators seeking to refine their teaching practice and author their own development.

New Racism

This book develops a debate around responsible social inquiry into new racism. A variety of ways of researching new forms of racism (for example, aversive, modern, cultural, purportedly color-blind, and new racism) are addressed. Experiments that have been undertaken to inquire into group identity and people’s implicit bias in relation to those perceived as "other" are critically explored and their potential consequences reconsidered. The book also critically explores survey research, which, it is argued, can serve to reinforce the notion of the existence of ethnoracial groups with defined boundaries that inhere in social life. The book considers interviewing (including focus group interviewing) and case study research (including participant observation/ethnography) in terms of possibilities for moving beyond new forms of racism. Action research (defined by the understanding of an inextricable link between knowing and acting) is examined in-depth in terms of the hopes to "make a difference" at the moment of inquiry. Types of retroductive logic that are used to examine underlying structures that arguably unduly constrain people’s life chances and render human relationships inhumane are also explored. The book draws together the different arguments; and it proposes ways in which the design of research into new racism can better approached as well as ways in which dialogue around processes of inquiry and the products thereof can be better fostered. Suggestions for nurturing humane social relationships that provide for transcultural meaning-making are threaded through the text.

Designed to continue the tradition of critical study and celebration of the literary products of Caribbean writers, Winds of Change features eighteen new essays written by writers and scholars of Caribbean literature. The volume was developed from the 1996 International Conference of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars and includes original essays by Opal Palmer Adisa, Maryse Condé, Beryl A. Gilroy, Merle Hodge, Patricia Powel, Astrid H. Roemer, and Elaine Savory, among others. The writers speak to each other and to the audience on the ways in which Caribbean women writers influence their societies (cultural, political, social, economic) through their literature. The work also features a discussion of Afro-Brasilian writers who situate themselves as Caribbean in sensibility and content.
