Comet was born from the author's Fulbright year living and walking in South Africa in the first year of President Nelson Mandela's term in office. The poem takes on race from the uncomfortable perspective of a Jewish, working class, white woman.


Disrupting White Fragility And Colorblind Racism: Using Games To Measure How Race And Ethnicity Courses Change Students’ Racial Ideologies, Alicia L. Brunson, Christopher Benedict Cartright Nov 2020

Disrupting White Fragility And Colorblind Racism: Using Games To Measure How Race And Ethnicity Courses Change Students’ Racial Ideologies, Alicia L. Brunson, Christopher Benedict Cartright

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

This research provides instructors teaching race and ethnicity a tool to assess the racial ideologies of their students in the form of “race talk.” In particular, Bonilla-Silva’s (2010) concepts denoting colorblindness and DiAngelo’s (2018) concept of white fragility were measured before and after completing one race and ethnicity course by having students play a live version of the game “Guess Who” (Hasbro Co.). At the end of the course, student responses during the game, and their subsequent reflections, revealed a significant decrease in white fragility. Using this game, instructors can assess students’ racial ideologies and whether or not ...


Diversity And Its Discontents: Deepening The Discourse, Ragnhild Utheim Nov 2020

Diversity And Its Discontents: Deepening The Discourse, Ragnhild Utheim

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

This article explores the shifting meanings of diversity discourse from the classical demarcations associated with demographic groups to the individualized applicability the concept has assumed in recent years. The trend toward attenuated understandings of diversity comes at the risk of slighting historic hardship that groups of people have long endured. The analysis weaves student testimonies and teaching experience from the classroom together with existing research and critical theory on diversity. In emphasizing the need to honor legacies of oppression among particular groups, while animating the possibilities that shared experiences across expansive human variation provide, the author includes feedback from classes ...


Where In The World Is The Black Educator? Teacher Shortage As Manufactured Crisis, Matthew D. Davis May 2020

Where In The World Is The Black Educator? Teacher Shortage As Manufactured Crisis, Matthew D. Davis

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

This exploration of “teacher shortage as manufactured crisis” uses five narratives from the archives that have arisen from one Midwestern (but still, decidedly, Border South) urban center: the St. Louis, Missouri, region. These narratives are an attempt to tap into Sankofa while looking toward a more just and equitable future


Building Racial Coalitions: Limitations And New Directions To Teaching “White Privilege”, Eric César Morales May 2020

Building Racial Coalitions: Limitations And New Directions To Teaching “White Privilege”, Eric César Morales

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

In this article, I pull from critical race theory, psychology, and philosophy to deconstruct the underlying psychological components that lead to “white fragility,” and I explore the limitations in current pedagogical approaches to teaching privilege. I argue that we adopt a more nuanced and context based understanding of “white privilege,” one that breaks down the concept into its two constituent parts: the “privilege/adversity paradigm” and “colonizer alignment privilege.” In the former, basic human physical or cultural traits are presented to students as capable of being beneficial or detrimental depending on context. In the latter, the ways in which people ...


Naming Resistance And Religion In The Teaching Of Race And White Supremacy: A Pedagogy Of Counter-Signification For Black Lives Matter, Martin Nguyen May 2020

Naming Resistance And Religion In The Teaching Of Race And White Supremacy: A Pedagogy Of Counter-Signification For Black Lives Matter, Martin Nguyen

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

The need to bring religion into our teaching of race and white supremacy is critically important, but by simply naming it, we take the first step in inviting our students to understand the how’s and why’s of it. The pedagogy of naming described herein, which is inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, is theoretically grounded in the theory of signification and counter-signification developed by scholars of religion, Charles H. Long and Richard Brent Turner. I explore how the act of naming, as a form of signification, can be employed to heuristically structure intersectional considerations of religion in the teaching ...
