Summary
"In this pioneering volume, critical whiteness studies is applied in the United Kingdom in a variety of educational contexts. Although whiteness is considered to be a system of oppression that benefits white students and teachers in educational arenas it is not necessarily monolithic. Whiteness is flexible and inflected by class to produce new 'whiteness(es)' that are no less racist in intent or practice. Through the use of ethnographic, biographical and documentary research, how whiteness 'works' in education is revealed. ... This book does not just consider the practices of whiteness but also how practitioners might consider critical whiteness studies in anti-racist practice. It is concerned with not only identifying how 'white supremacy' continues to dominate educational discourse and practice but how it can be resisted."--Publisher description, from p. [4] of cover
